Тhis is Daria, the three-years-old daughter of Margarita Ivanova from Stara Zagora. She is very happy to help out in the kitchen. Her mother has prepared suitable products so she could make her afternoon snack herself. Take a look at the other recipes from Margarita, too. I keep wondering what to make for breakfast every weekend 🙂 

Lady Fingers with marmalade – you will need:  1 package of lady fingers (the soft variety), 1 jar of hip jam, some cocoa syrup (optional). Coat the lady fingers with marmalade to stick them toghether. You may pour some cocoa syrup on them if you like. 

HONEY KITTENS You will need: 2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1 coffee cup vegetable oil, 1 tsp soda, 2 tbsp honey, flour and marmalade for sticking the cookies together (hip marmalade works best). Make a dough and leave it to rest for about 10 minutes. Roll it to a thickness of about 5-7 mm. Use a glass to cut crescent shapes, bake them and stick them in pairs with the marmalade. Use melted chocolate or thick cocoa syrup to draw the eyes and the whiskers.

CHOCOLATE CREAM DONUTS – You will need: 150 ml milk, 20 g yeast, 2 eggs, 3 tbsp sugar, a pinch of salt, flour, cooking oil (for frying), chocolate cream. Make a dough, leave it to rise, roll it to a thickness of about  7-8 mm, cut it into circles (with a glass). Put some chocolate on one half of the dough circles. put the other ones on top and press well so the chocolate won’t run while you’re frying them. Leave them to rise again, then fry. Take them out on kitchen paper and sprinkle them with confectioner’s sugar. You may cut out smaller cicrcles in the middle and fry them without a filling then add your topping of choice. Many kids love them, and they are better than the store-bought kind as they contain less fat and have been made with products you can chose yourself. You may invite the child to help you cut the circles and add the filling (cheese, jam or white chocolate). You may also make plain donuts and sprinkle them with confectioner’s sugar when they are ready.

Cheesy potato souffle

You will need: 4-5 potatoes, 2 eggs, 100 g cheese (Gauda, etc),  2 tbsp flour, 4 tbsp vegetable oil.

Preheat the oven. Boil and mash the potatoes. Shred the cheese. Melt a little butter, add the flour and then the yolks, beaten with the yoghurt and 100-150 ml water. Bring the bechamel sauce to a boil then take it off the heat and pour it in the mashed potatoes. Whisk the whites and add them, too. Put the mixture in oven-proof bowls and bake.
