My little boy wants to be a chef, a master chef. He is almost ten years old and for the past 3 is playing with cooking tools and tells everyone he is a chef. I bought him lots of kitchen toys and even a small kitchen. He made a lemonade stand, a shop, an ice cream cart and a restaurant. We are invited to eat at his restaurant or have a date night.
Yesterday I put him to be a real chef so we made muffins together. We prepared the ingredients, we measured them and then I involved him in the process. He loved it. He couldn’t wait for the muffins to be done.
We made an easy recipe and we put Nutella on top of some of them.
- 3 eggs
- 150 ml oil
- 150 ml milk/mineral water
- 100 g sugar
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla homemade extract
- 7g baking powder
- 335 g flour
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Put the muffins baking paper on the muffins tray.
Mix the eggs with sugar. Add the milk, vanilla extract and oil. Mix the baking powder with the flour. Add the mix flour little by little to the eggs mixture.
Fill 2/3 of the muffins paper with the batter. Bake 20 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius. You can test it with a toothpick to see if is good.
Serve them with chocolate, ice cream or jam. Enjoy!

He’s adorable and these look delicious!
What is the role of mineral water in the baking of the muffins?
They are more fluffy.
The little chef did a great job!
FANTASTIC!!!! what a wonderful mom, adorable chef, and great muffins!!!! 🙂
I’m happy to see children learning to cook. It gives me hope that the knowledge and joy of making and eating real food will be retained in the next generation.
That’s wonderful that your son is so interested in cooking. He’s so cute, and the muffins sound good.
Reblogged this on Wag 'n Bietjie.
Any time you need a babysitter, you can drop him off here. We can babysit him for free if he will do some “cheffing” for us! 😂
😂 OK. He would love to cook for you.
Thanks for sharing. He’s really adorable

Cooking with children is so much fun. I love cooking with my 15-year-old daughter and my three-year-old nephew: https://wordpress.com/post/rabbitlaneutah.com/3312.
He’s so sweet and dedicated! Your pride in your son makes you lift off the ground! Haha, clearly he makes you happy. Savor that all you possibly can. I hope I get to have moments with my very own child like that one day!
Thank you so much. I hope you get to have moments like this
My 11 year old has been cooking and baking on her own for the whole family for years. Meanwhile, however, she uses salt, so that I can go more often but sometimes in between. Too much salt. But only so she can now much more than the 24 year old. I find it amazing that children can cook so early and want. Maybe they’ll both stick with it. And have already found their vocation.
So great! I hope too.
These look amazing, great job!
O yeah! I’ll be trying these this weekend.
looks yummy.. I’m also fond of backing. will try it
Really admire people with skill especially the kids.
