Home-made oatmeal bread, kneaded with love.

  1. That is the sweetest picture.

    Would you share the recipe, please? I’d love to see my little ones kneading bread (since I’ve never made any from scratch before).

    The recipe is from the More With Less cookbook, put out by the Mennonite Central Committee. I’ll email it to you, along with some bread-baking tips!

  3. Yum. Pretzels (in all their varieties of preschool shapes!) are fun to make too. I just recently tried putting pepperoni and Italian herbs into some bread sticks. Made good dipping lunches with a bowl of red sauce. And we all know dipping is good. I love baking with kids!

    Dipping is great. I swear kids would eat styrofoam if you let them dip it! Baking is fun, and as the days get colder and I don’t mind heating up the kitchen, we’ll be doing more of it.

  4. Oh how sweet. How earnestly she kneads, with tiny hands, a ball of dough bigger than her head.

  5. How sweet! I’m currently waiting for a batch of sugar cookie dough to chill so my 2 year old and I can make cookies. I’d love to learn to make bread from scratch but it looks so intimidating. May I have a copy of the recipe too?

  6. This is so cute!!! I would so love to bake some bread now…stuck as I am in ovenless China.

    How did the bread turn out? The tiny tot must have been so proud when she was handed a sample of her hardwork? 😉
