Back To School Bake Off – Recipes


Hi ladies, and thank you for joining in this years back to school bake off. Most of you reading this would probably know me as Mandy the weird, organised, pastel loving baker addict from My Lovely Little Nest, but I’m also so incredibly blessed to be a part of the Mumspo Mag team (AND thank you so much for allowing me to take over here).

I’m currently locked out of my blog as I can’t remember my password (yeah laugh on my hubby did) so this year i’ll be sharing recipes for the bake off here.

The objective is to bake 5 items either from this list, your own recipes or packet mix on if you prefer, and freeze those items making term 1 of school so much easier. You can bake only sweet or savoury or a mix of both, there’s no rules just do as you please.

Once we’ve trashed our kitchens post Martha cook up, please come and share your hauls on my Facebook page as I love to see what you’ve all made.

If your child/children’s schools have prohibited ingredients such as eggs and peanuts etc please be mindful before donning your apron and cranking up the oven.

Ok enough chit chat lets get to the recipes!
