Get the whole family baking this Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner (3rd April) so why not spend some family time together in the kitchen by baking some tasty treats for mum?

Mother’s Day is a wonderful occasion for fathers and their children to enjoy a fun activity together whilst also preparing something lovely for mum. The pressure to organise an impressive display of affection can be unsettling, but with the help of Canned Food UK’s recipes and a little team work, it’s easy to make mum proud.

From toddlers to grandparents, baking using canned ingredients is an easy and child-friendly way to get everyone having fun in the kitchen. By taking the time to cook mum some tasty cakes together, there’s no better way to show how much she means to the family.

Canned Food UK has many delicious recipes to choose from, which suit all tastes. If mum loves chocolate then cook up a rich and indulgent Chocolate Puddle Pudding to put a smile on her face. Don’t forget, baking with canned fruit is a great way to contribute to your 5-A-DAY, so why not serve a heavenly Cinnamon, Apple and Pear Crumble Cake with Custard, or fun Carrot and Pineapple Picnic Squares? Rhubarb and Blackberry Muffins with Strawberry Yoghurt Pots are great for a healthy breakfast-in-bed treat.

“Baking is a fun way for families to come together and make some mess in the kitchen,” says Steve Gogerty, chairman of Canned Food UK. “Using canned food is a great way to teach children about cooking and introduce them to different kinds of fruit and vegetables, whilst keeping chopping at bay! The Canned Food UK website has plenty of super speedy cake recipes to choose from that will provide the family with delicious dishes to cook up on Mother’s Day.”
