Baking With Mom

With Mother’s Day right around the corner, there is no better time than now to reminice about moments in the kitchen with Mom. Our special guest blogger, Sydney (age 11),  loves baking with her Mom and spending time in the kitchen making memories. It is a great way to spend quality time with her family making delicious treats for all to enjoy.

Baking With My Mom!

One of my favorite thing to do is bake with my mom! My favorite thing about my Mom working at Nordic Ware is that she brings home awesome baking supplies! I can recall many times spent in the kitchen with my Mom baking. We have made a lot of things from corn bread to cakes! After a few years of baking with just my Mom, my little brother came along. He started baking with us when he was just two years old. My mom and I had to help him cut out the cookie shapes. All three of us would get full of flour! After cutting out enough shapes or stirring it just right, we would eat a little batter (before the eggs were added of course)! These days we still bake ALL THE TIME! It’s always a great family time for us and I hope every one likes my recipe. But mostly what I want to say is this… I LOVE BAKING WITH MY MOM!!! Below is my favorite brownie recipe.


Ingredients to Sydney’s super brownies

Servings 10

  • 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil (or use apple sauce for a healthier less greasy mix)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 cup flour


Preheat oven to 350°.Mix oil and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla; stir just until blended. Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir dry ingredients into the oil/sugar mixture. Pour into greased 9 x 9 square pan. The best tool to scrap the batter out are the baker’s scrapers, they are extremely handy! Bake for 20 minutes or until sides just start to pull away from the pan. Cool completely before cutting.
