Yogurt Cake, baked by Noah
My mom sent me a book about the differences between French and American parenting recently. One of the things the author says is that French parents let their children bake at a young age. It teaches patience, precision, etc. She included a recipe for this cake where you put little cups of yogurt in the batter, and then you measure all the other ingredients in the yogurt containers. We had a great time baking it. I was planning to share the recipe here, but it really wasn't that good... The point is that letting my three year old bake a cake was actually a really great Saturday morning activity. A funny side note about this book on French parenting was that I went to the Tucson Children's Museum with my friend Sara and her kids on Sunday morning, bringing with me a bag of the cute little cupcakes that Noah made. As we walked up the steps Sara said, "So I've been reading this book about French parenting..." -- Same book! What are the odds?
