Today, out of the blue, Adam asked me for a birthday cake. His birthday is apparently months away.
"It's February, and your birthday is on July", followed with that "Month of the Year" song, hoping he would get me. He asked me to stop singing and continued asking for cake. I guess he was asking for a cake, instead of a birthday cake.
"Okay, I'll bake you one if you agree to help me bake it". He screamed for joy and started running back and forth between the living hall and kitchen. So I got my phone and went through my bookmarked list.
I decided to make muffins, instead of a real cake. He doesn't know that.....yet.:P Technically, I'm still sick...and I'm not in mood to clean up a big mess. Hi hi
I quickly gathered a punnet of blueberries, some ripe bananas, and eggs and put them on the table. Then I asked Adam to peel the banana skins and mashed it. He did, but minutes later, his focus turned to the eggs. He wanted to beat the eggs. And before he starts to repeat himself, I cracked an egg and let him beat it. He was so happy to do it.
After finish with that, I asked him to slowly pour the eggs, followed with all core ingredients onto the dry ingredients bowl. No single spill, whatsover. :D He helped me arranged the muffin cases, and he pointed on each hole every time I pour the batter in. Yep, I did it. I couldn't stand the coughing so I had to rush things a bit he he
Tomorrow, these muffins will be his breakfast and packed to school as his morning snack. :D I used Leslie Durso's Blueberry and Banana Muffins's recipe. I got 6 muffins and a small loaf out of it.
Muffins are easy. Within an hour, Adam got his "cake". :)
Psst..that is his favorite bus.. He plays with it almost everyday..
