The question ‘How to feed children’ concerns all parents. Very often feeding your kids can be challenging. Children can utterly refuse eating healthy foods you try to serve them at times and you can be left pulling your hair out trying to be a great parent and keeping your kids healthy too.
Kids do not normally want to think of nutrition value. For them food’s main function is to taste great. I gave up explaining how important for well-doing is to get enough fiber, protein, vitamins, microelements and so on a long time ago and I am sure that you have too. After numerous failed attempts at feeding my kids with foods that were healthy but vapid in their opinion, I made up my mind to use some tricks. (Yes, raising children requires much ingenuity!) I guess most parents use them on a regular basis. My favorite one is to disguise foods they do not want to eat (Do you do this too?).
A carrot cake is a wonderful example how vegetable, particularly carrots, can be hid and not recognized at all. I recently found a great carrot cake recipe that was typical of what I mean here. The recipe I found from someone that I know that works for uk.cupid.com. One thing that I liked about the recipe was not only all of the healthy things that were included but also that it was gluten-free. This recipe is a real godsend for parents whose children suffer gluten intolerance or the Celiac disease.
But before heating the oven and prepare all of the ingredients I recommend all parents get tuned-in to cooking. It means to get rid of all worries, bad thoughts and frustration. I have definitely noticed that a good mood is a secret of delicious baking.
The equipment you’ll need is as follows
- An oven heated up to 350 degrees
- A mixer
- A 2LB loaf pan
- A parchment
The set of products is unpretentious too.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup grated carrots
- 1/2 cup sultanas (soak in hot water)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp gluten free baking powder
- 3/4 cup gluten-free self-raising four
Heat the oven, line a loaf tin with parchment and grease it with some amount of butter. Beat butter and sugar to achieve creamy and soft texture. Grate carrots and add them to the initial texture. The next step will be to stir in the eggs and sultanas soaked in hot water. Chop nuts and mix them with cinnamon, gluten free baking powder and gluten free self- raising powder. Marry the mixture comprising of liquid ingredients and dry-goods mixture. Tip it into the pan and bake for 50 minutes. The carrot cake is ready when the toothpick is clean after being poked into the highest part of the cake. Take out a pan, let it cool for a 25 minutes and remove your work of culinary art.
There you go! Call your kids over and let them enjoy the fruits of your labor. Make sure not to mention that it is made of carrot. I bet they never guess!
