(Mini) Greedy Bird Baking Enterprise #23 Chocolate Shortbread à la Matilda

With our favourite cake-making expert in residence (and a brand new apron, courtesy of aforementioned cake-making expert - thank you Katie) we could hardly not indulge in some baked chocolate yumminess. Matilda loved this recipe, which involved getting mucky, some good hard pounding, much prodding with a fork and Smarties.

O went completely mad for his sister's shortbread, scrounging for crumbs on the floor. He's a mini greedy bird in the making my little O.

In other news, today in school Matilda made "jus de raisin". The French clearly like to set their young citizens on the right path early.


  1. You are lucky to have a cake-expert residing with you for a few days ;)

  2. Benj - I can send you the recipe if you like. Along with the child for pounding, prodding, chocolate squiggling purposes ;) xxx


Many thank yous if you're taking the time to leave a comment. You are most lovely in my sight.
