Baking Classes.........

The summer has began and today was my first baking class. I really enjoyed it. Not only did the girls have a blast, but I also enjoyed my time with them immensely. When you're teaching eight year old girls to bake you have to go very slow and explain every step. I had a great time and I think we accomplished a lot! First, each girl made their own miny loaf of deliciously delectable banana bread. Then, as their bread was baking, we mixed up some scrumdillyumpeous peanut butter cookies for them to munch on. Altogether It went very well. Here is our recipe for banana bread!

It adds that cute touch to baking. Your classes sound fun and I think I might have to attend it one day. By the way, this week I made my first apple pie. It was a hit! I've already made it again.
