Day 8 Monkey bread

You read it right. This easy bread is named as monkey bread. Not sure the reason is but it’s super easy and my kids love to make them. They picked this recipe from Disney princess cook book. So apart from crazy about princess they try to eat what Disney princess eats. It’s very easy recipe and only thing I did was using the oven.


Ingredients

Plain flour 2 cups

Castor sugar 1 cup

Butter 1/2 cup

Cinnamon powder 3 tbsp

Baking powder 1 tbsp

Salt a pinch

Method:

Mix flour,salt,baking powder and butter. Make a smooth dough. Make small balls.

Mix sugar and cinnamon powder.

Take a 2 tbsp of butter in a bowl.

Grease a cake pan.

Dip each ball in butter and roll the ball in cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat it with rest of the balls.

Place each ball in the pan, you can stack them too. Pour felt over butter and sprinkle left over sugar mixture.

Preheat oven for 350 degrees Celsius and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Kitchen will smell like anything. I like to combination of sugar and cinnamon.

Sorry for the pic, was not able to stop kids from taking a piece before the photo session.

Now that she celebrated her birthday in school she has planned or gave me a wish list which she made her elder sister to write it on a paper.The invites to her birthday party apart from family and friends are Doreman,Nobita,Oggy,Cockraches,Chota bheem, Chutki, Raju, Dolu,Bolu, Henry,Ninja Hattori and she doesn’t want to include Motu.

She saw revlon hair colour ad many times but she didn’t follow what is shown in the ad.Today she realised that hair can be coloured in many colours.Now she wants to colour her hair PINK.

Her cake should have brown icing with a big flower and a Winnie the pooh toy on that.I am happy that she didn’t ask me any cartoon character or barbie cake and my baker too is happy that i will take what is their in his bakery rather than me asking him to customize my cake.

She decided  whom to take with me to get the cake from the bakery on the party day.It seems i didn’t take her last time and she wants to come with me along with my cousin.

Not able to manage my two blogs.Pinks saw this blog name and now she wants to me get a new blog on her name…

My Little Story Teller — Story 2

Pinkuda told me story today afternoon when i was trying to make her sleep.She hates to sleep in the afternoon so to divert me she told me this story.I wrote about a story she told before,here is the link for Story 1.

Here goes her story….

Once upon a time there were four friends.Rajasthan,Sonia Gandhi,Youmiko and Varu.(Youmiko is a cartoon character and varu is her elder sister).They all went to a park one evening.Park was empty,no kids were there.Then they went to another park.

They played a lot and when it was dark they came back home.While back home they all fell into a pit which has a net.Then they saw one mouse and they all asked the mouse to cut the net.Mouse was very good it bit the net and all of them came up.

They took the mouse and went to Lion tiger’s house.Lion mummy shouted at them why they brought mouse to the house.Then they all told her what happened so lion mummy was happy and gave the mouse a big cheese piece.

 

(Here lion tiger is husband and lion mummy is me)

 

My Little Story Teller

Every night I tell a story to both the kids before going to sleep.Today pinkuda said she will tell me a story.The story goes like this

My teacher Megha mama brought mangoes.*Pause*

She took one bite and there was a one big worm. *Pause*

She put that worm on her shoulder. *Pause*

And that worm became a big snake and bit her on her cheek. *Pause*

She was in the hospital for 10 days.

And she came back to school with one big scar.

ME:- Your teacher told you this story?

Pinkuda:No,its my own story but I saw scar on teacher’s cheek.
