If you’re looking for a short story, poem or fancy looking at some beautiful pictures have a look at The Book of Hoped. It’s completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon, Jacqueline Wilson – and Katherine herself.
The collection, published by Bloomsbury, is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals.
I’ve made these lots of times and every time they’ve turned out to be very delicious 😊
You will need an adult to help you to weigh your ingredients and with the oven.
Remember, never go near an oven when it is on. They can be very dangerous.
125g self raising flour
125g butter or margarine
125g caster sugar
2 medium sized eggs
12 bun cases
sprinkles for decoration.
1. Ask an adult to preheat the oven to 180 degrees C or gas mark 4.
2. Carefully put one bun case into each bun tray hole.
3. Mix all of the ingredients into a bowl, all at once. Make sure everything is smooth and it should look nice and creamy.
4. Carefully spoon the mix into the cases and make sure each one gets about the same amount.
5. Ask your adult for help and remember to stay away from the oven...Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
6. Put the icing sugar into a bowl and add a little water, you won’t need much! You can add food colouring if you want to.
7. When the cakes are cooked they will look nice and lightly browned.
8. When they are cool, use a spoon or butter knife to spread the icing and add sprinkles if you like.
9. The best bit...enjoy eating them and share them with your family.
Here’s a photo of ours, I’m sure yours will look just as tasty 😊
