Child Friendly Cooking Activities

Bake a Chocolate Cake!

2-year-old Susie is making a super easy chocolate cake. This is a great recipe for kids because there are about 6 ingredients, and you just dump it in and stir it up! If you've seen Susie's other episodes, you know she can't resist eating batter. We chose to put the eggs in last so Susie could sample the batter before baking.
