Baking for Babies

After my first baby baking experience my Mum decided to make biscuits with Baby G. It was good fun, and messy, but we were surprised by how much he loved the biscuits. For days after all the biscuits were eaten he kept asking for them.

Nanny had bought lots of biscuit cutters and Baby G chose a train, a car and a butterfly cutter to use. Forever after he kept asking “Where a train biscuit?” “Where a car biscuit gone?”

We used a basic recipe which you can add flavour to such as mixed spice, giner or vanilla. Here is the recipe which we took from a kids cookbook I used to use when I was little!


  • 250g plain flour
  • 125g butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 2 tsp mixed spice


  1. Pre-heat oven to 190°c.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together, slowly add the egg and mix.
  3. Sift in the flour and spice into the bowl and mix everything together to make a firm ball of dough.
  4. Sprink some flour on a rolling pin and onto surface, then roll out dough.
  5. Cut the dough into shapes and place on a baking tray in the oven for 10 mins.
