We've been on a baking break since summer, but now that some cooler weather is here, we're back to baking some of our favorite goodies. One afternoon last week Maddie and I made our favorite banana loaf. The recipe is really simple, and it makes the yummiest banana bread.

 I'll be posting the recipe we use at the end of this post, so feel free to use it if you're looking!

Oh you know, just mashing bananas and twirling her hair at the same time! Hah!

When I'm baking with the little people, I use a few tricks to make it a bit easier with little helping hands.
  • If I have time, I'll try to get all the dry ingredients into one mixing bowl before we start. (This helps speed up the process!) 
  • I try to look ahead and see what measuring cup sizes and spoons I'll need and get them set out.
  • When I'm baking with Maddie we work on counting at the same time! (Lets count how many ingredients, how many muffins in each tin, how many cups of sugar/flour/eggs, etc...)
  • I have one set of stainless steel measuring spoons and one plastic set as well. When baking with little ones, I always use the plastic set so it's easier to hold for them.
  • After we finish the actual making of the treats, I'll spend some time cleaning up and washing dishes. Then I'll sometimes leave a few little items that I've already rinsed fairly well (like a mixing bowl, measuring cups and maybe a spatula/spoon) and let her clean up and wash at the end. I've found they love using a sponge or bristle brush with some soap and water to help clean up.
