On the back of the packaging (which my 3 year old opened a bit too excitedly) from some Silicone Children's Bakeware from Pyrex was a recipe for an Apple Sponge which is really simple to make, so I left her to bake by herself. Last time I did this was when she made Ice Cream Bread, so I maybe should have learnt, but hey, what could go wrong?
"10 minutes later and I had a "help" from the direction of the kitchen, followed by "this looks like sick, is it right?". "Erm....not usually, no".
After a bit of explaining about why you shouldn't just add the eggs and milk all at once, instead you should add them bit by bit and mix well each time, and 5 minutes with a hand blender, we were back on track.
The Pyrex Flexi-Twist For Kids Numbers Tray is a fantastic cake dish that is really fun and different and it only arrived the other day, so she was keen to try it out.
My daughter left the peel on the apples which she claimed was more healthy, I suspect it was also more lazy! She also got cake mix everywhere, but she did clear up, so I'll forgive her..
The cake looked and smelled great, we had to wait until it was cool to turn it out so that it didn't crumble.
One of the best things about silicone is the ease of cleaning. All the burned messy bits just slide right off. Great when your chef isn't incredibly neat.
Your baking also comes out of silicone bakeware really easily, all we had to do was turn it upside down over a plate and it just fell out. The end result was fantastic, we were all delighted with it - especially the 2 little boys. Our 4 year old is confident with numbers, and took great delight teaching the 3 year old!
The cake itself was lovely, the peel was soft and I think she was right to leave it on. It's quite dense as you'd expect with a cake containing so much apple, and it went beautifully with some vanilla ice cream...
