Granny's Kitchen Baking
$20 -- available at Take Note
For those of us lucky enough to have
a grandmother who spent rainy days
whipping up delectably sweet treats in
the kitchen, (especially if this extended
to allowing junior -- and probably quite
unhelpful -- chefs to lick the spoon), the
memory lingers of wholesome and deli-
cious old-fashioned home baking.
If you haven't managed to inherit
your grandmother's cookbook, Granny's
Kitchen Baking does an excellent job
of furnishing aspiring Alison Holsts
with tried and tested recipes for all the
From perfect scones to chocolaty
afghans, this book is a nostalgic collec-
tion of over 150 recipes, along with easy
preparation and baking methods.
Simple enough for the kids to have
a go at, those graduating from the Edmonds Cookbook could do
worse than following in 'Granny's' footsteps. But be warned,
when delicious homemade baking is this easy, a gym membership
had better not be far behind.
This simple scone recipe from the book can be whipped up in
under ten minutes.
3 cups four
5 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
75 gm butter
1 cup of milk
Preheat oven to 200ºC. Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.
Rub butter into four mixture until it resembles bread-
Add milk and mix quickly to create a soft dough. You may
need to add a bit more milk.
Separate dough into portions for cooking. Place on a prepared
oven tray. Brush tops with milk and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Serve warm, straight from the oven (preferably dolloped
with lots of jam and cream!).
4 Ingredients Kids
Kim McCosker and
This simple cookbook follows
on from Australian sensations
Kim McCosker and Rachael
Birmingham's successful cookbook
and internet series 4 Ingredients,
based on the principal of using just
four simple ingredients to create
quick and tasty homemade meals,
snacks and treats.
In 4 Ingredients Kids, the idea
is the same, but has been tailored
to develop a love of good food in
children and inspire their time-poor
parents. The book has children's
lunches, parties and quick and easy
dinners covered, with lots of colour-
ful images to inspire young chefs.
Simple and clear, with a glossary of common terms and
sections on healthy eating, kitchen safety and food hygiene,
the book's 80 recipes are adapted from the cooking website's
Facebook favourites, which the authors say were mentioned
over and over again by children and their parents.
Recipes often rely on ingredients like dried and canned
soups and I did struggle somewhat with the 'healthy food'
label, though many of the recipes would be great to 'smug-
gle' extra vegetables into. However, for simple treats and as
the basis for many a quick-and-easy dinner, some of these
recipes would be hard to beat.
