Easy school holiday recipes for kids
Join Chef Craig for an online version of RACV Club's Kid’s Kitchen these school holidays. You'll find his recipe for crusty pizza here, along with Le Petit Gateau recipes for donuts and Halloween cupcakes.
Families can have fun making some of their favourite treats at home these school holidays. From crusty, cheesy pizza to golden cinnamon donuts, and cupcakes for Halloween, these three recipes will keep kids occupied, and also teach them new culinary skills.
Older children can follow the recipes, while younger children can enlist a parent's help. There's also Chef Craig's online video, with step-by-step instructions on how to make the delicious pizza for a family lunch or dinner.
Le Petit Gateau Executive Pastry Chef Amit Sinha adds some sweetness to the mix. His recipe for cinnamon donuts proves the best donuts come fresh out of a frying pan, not a box. His recipe for chocolate ganache cupcakes is also versatile. Children can make a plain batch during the holidays, then bake another batch for Halloween, adding creepy decorations with liquorice strips to create spiders and mini white marshmellows for ghosts. The great thing about cooking is that you can eat the results. So, put on your aprons, get messy and have fun!
