The Food Exchange – Baking With Children

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

It is time for the Food Exchange again. This month Greta and I decided to on the topic of “baking with children”. As Greta is expecting her first baby soon I thought this was a perfectly timed topic!

We both started thinking about some of the first things we baked. Greta sent me a recipe for Fanta cake… yes, Fanta cake! I had heard of people adding Coca-Cola to cakes before but never Fanta so I was really interested to see how it turned out.

As it is an all-in-one cake method it is very quick and easy to make (perfect for children!). The batter is then tipped into a lined loaf tin and baked for 50 minutes. Decorated with a Fanta icing and it is done!

The result is a really soft moist cake which actually tastes really nice! There is a very subtle orange taste but it doesn’t taste of Fanta. I would definitely make this again. If you would like to try this cake you can find this recipe you can find it here.

Make sure you head over to Greta’s blog to see what I asked her to bake! It is something I can remember making a lot with my mum and sister when we were little!

Let us know if there is anything you would like to see us bake!

    1. The only other one I had heard of was John Whaite adding Coca Cola to a chocolate cake batter (if you google it it comes up straight away!) it just makes a really moist cake. I would definitely recommend it! πŸ™‚
