Eating is one of NebulaHouse’s favorite things to do. But! How do you get the food from the fridge to the table? That is another question. In our new “Foodie Cat Meets Foodie Kids” blog installments – kids create yummy recipes for Gideon, the feisty and fat “Foodie Cat” and the star of our new Foodie Cat Digital Storybook Series.
In the first story of the Gideon storybook series entitled “Close Your Eyes Gideon,” we meet Gideon as he slumbers under a tree, dreaming about luscious sweet things to eat. Inspired by Gideon’s dreams of puffy marshmallow clouds, we have gathered some outstanding ORIGINAL recipes from NebulaHouse affiliated kids. Here is what our friend Fi conjured up:
Fi’s Mostly Raspberry with Some Strawberry Sweet Cake
(as dictated by Fi over the phone)
- ½ cup of raspberries (and a few strawberries, if you want)
- ¼ cup of heavy cream
- ¼ cup milk
- 1 or maybe 2 eggs
- About a ½ cup of flour
- 2 teaspoons of sugar
Turn on the oven and warm it up to bake (that means preheat it to about 325° Fahrenheit or 150° Celsius). Clean and cut the berries into little pieces and put them in a mixing bowl. Cover the berries in cream (stare at that for a minute and try to not let your mouth water) then add the milk! Take a fork and crush the cream, milk and berries together. Next, crack open the egg(s) and beat them into the creamed berries. When that is done, slowly stir in the flour. Top it off with a couple of teaspoons of sugar (NebulaHouse thinks you could also add a bit of vanilla and a dash of salt).
Put the batter in a small baking form, turn the oven up to 375° F or 200° C and bake for 15-20 minutes or until it looks like it is done (Fi thinks it could be done in less time). It is always good to stick the knife into the middle of the cake and check – if the knife comes out clean then it is done… if there is batter on the knife, it still needs to bake! Let it cool then cut or remove from the bake form and serve. If you are serving it to an adult, add a little bit of fresh mint on top.
This recipe serves a few kids probably… but usually it is just Fi and her little brother and they can eat it up all by themselves.
