The Little Baker

Here's my Best friend Lola the Baker Girl, helping me bake our daily bread.

She LOVES to eat "Gumma Bread" but this is the first time she asked to help me make it...


She shaped it

and patted it...

and sprinkled the seeds on top... and then it went into the oven

Now it was time to make more bread dough

She stirred the flour, yeast, salt and water until she couldn't move the dough with a spoon any more..and then came the fun part...

In we go, hands first! First, you have to taste it....

then "squish and push it"...

then taste it again! I think Lola is just like her Grandmother...she likes the taste of the dough just as much as the finished product! This is going to be delicious bread!

Ooooh, I was hoping this was a Lola-post! Aw, she asked to bake bread with you? I'll bet that warmed your heart. Think of the memories you are creating for her right now...not to mention extremely important bread-baking skills! lol
You are very fortunate to have such an adorable helper in your kitchen. :-)

Ah, Lola is an angel.
Someday, a long time from now, I look forward to making bread with a grandchild.

Peace!
