A few days ago Baby and I decided to bake. We wanted to bake something along an Easter theme, so we decided to take part in the Chocolate Easter Nest Challenge. We were sent some lovely goodies to help us with our baking.
First of all I made sure Baby had on her cute Cath Kidston apron, an absolute must to look good whilst baking! Then I positioned her in the middle of the kitchen to prevent her from helping herself to any ‘toys’ she might find in our drawers. Finally we were ready to bake; to be fair Baby was more of a cheerleader, but she did sample the cornflakes.
I just made up a recipe along these lines;
2 tbs golden syrup
90g chocolate chips
1 tbs cocoa
I lined a cupcake tray with 12 cupcake cases. Then I weighed out all the ingredients using our Salter Geo Electronic Kitchen Scales. These scales are really easy to use, have a clear digital display and you can reset them back to zero, so you can measure lots of things one after another in the same bowl.
I then popped everything, apart from the cornflakes, in a bain marie stiring occasionally with the Heston Blumenthal Precision Multipurpose Spatulas. These spatulas can be used at high heat and are cleverly shaped to allow access to all the nooks and crannies. Then, when all ingredients were melted and scrummy, I poured the chocolate mix onto the cornflakes and mixed well. The Precision spatulas were great for this as they let me mix well, but they didn’t crush and break the cornflakes. After a thorough mixing to ensure all cornflakes were coated, I divided the mixture into the cupcake cases, popped 3 mini eggs on the top of each and put them in the fridge for 60 minutes to chill. I set the Salter electronic kitchen timer and we went to have a little sit down.
Then they were ready for eating!
The kitchen equipment proved to be really good quality. The spatulas range from £13-£18 and although I would think twice about spending this much on a spatula, they were far and away the best I have ever used. Therefore, if you bake and cook a lot it may be worth it. The scales have been reduced to £49.99 at the moment on Amazon and the Timer was £10. I genuinely could not find fault with any of the products I was sent.
