Fun Things to Make in Your Free Time

fun things to bake

What are some fun things to bake with the family? I say funny things to bake because they do not have to be the traditional cookie or cake that we have grown accustomed to. And they sure are not boring and mundane like a meal we eat in the office today. Baking is a great family time and you can find countless fun and delicious recipes for your family to enjoy as much as you like.

Here are a few fun things to bake with the family. We always have fun baking a chocolate chip pie together. It is such a nostalgic and sweet flavor that just makes you want to bake it again. And of course, chocolate chip is one of my all-time favorites!

Fun Things To Bake


The recipe for our famous chocolate chip pie has been around for eleven years and has been baked over until every last bit of the delicious chocolate chips is completely dry. And yes, the crust is still pretty much the same, which was actually a problem for us. With the new digital scale I now use, we do not bake the entire cake from scratch but bake a thin layer of the dry ingredients and then top it with the wet ingredients. After that, scrape off the thin layer of dry ingredients and put it in the oven, bake for approximately 10 minutes, and then turn it out and cut it into the desired squares.

Another fun thing to do is to make a blueberry streusel pie. You will need; 2 cups of milk, three eggs, two tablespoons of dried cranberries, one teaspoon of vanilla, and one cup of grated butter. Combine all the ingredients and start rolling the mixture out onto a floured surface. When you are done rolling the mixture, squeeze out the excess water from the mixture and turn it out onto a cookie sheet. Bake the cookie for approximately ten minutes, remove it from the oven, and put it onto a wire rack to cool.

For another fun recipe, you can also use the same flour recipe from the last recipe. This time, however, you may want to add in one extra egg to give the pie a coarser texture. In addition, you may also want to add in some cranberries or raisins to give it a little bit of tartness.

A Much Ado 


If you are looking for something a little different than the traditional oatmeal and sugar cookies and cakes, then why not try a delicious apple crisp? This fun and easy-to-make dessert are relatively simple to make. All that you will need for this dessert is; one cup of apple juice, one cup of sugar, one tablespoon of cinnamon, and approximately two to three tablespoons of butter. Mix all of your ingredients together, pour into a mixing bowl, and use a rubber or silicone spatula to turn it into a dough. Once you have made the dough, simply take it out of the refrigerator and form it into an apple crisp.

Baking is not only fun, but it can be a great way to improve your health as well. Many people do not realize the nutritional value that they can get from certain baked goods, such as pastries and cakes. By replacing items such as refined sugar with high-quality cinnamon rolls, you can dramatically lower your total daily recommended allowance of calories. In addition, you can enjoy a wonderful sweet treat without having to worry about the health consequences.

Final Words 

When it comes to baking, cupcakes are often considered to be some of the most simple recipes out there. However, that is not the case when you begin learning about different types of cupcakes and how to bake them. As you learn more about cupcakes and different styles of cookie recipes, you will begin to understand just how versatile they can be. You will also begin to enjoy new desserts that you never thought you would try.
