Madeline's Made-From-Scratch Cake!

This morning, while I made pancakes, Madeline started asking for all sorts of ingredients of her own. It was Ladybug, Snowflake and Banjo's birthdays -- Madeline wanted to make a cake for three of the special stuffed animals in our house.

Eggs, milk, baking powder, butter, sugar, flour... Whatever she asked for, I obliged. Together, we poured the concoction into a soufflé dish, and put it in the oven. I could not believe the perfect dish that came out of the oven. And by the time I got out of the shower, she had scrounged up icing, sprinkles and chocolate chips all by herself.

Can you believe it was honestly delicious? Since then, she's baked several more things from scratch without a recipe, including home baked bread. But she's also checked several cook books out from the school library and we've been having a lot of fun.
Madeline loves to bake, and she's good at it!
