I’m not sure how it happened but my 3 year old has turned into quite the little baker. And it absolutely melts my heart. So you better believe when my friends at Bonne Maman invited me to create a special recipe for Mother’s Day, I immediately enlisted my Sous Chef.

Toddler in the Kitchen - The Lemon Bowl

When I asked him what we should make with our blackberry preserves, he immediately suggested we bake muffins. Apparently bake muffins is toddler speak for “eat preserves straight from the jar with a spoon.”

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I can’t help but feel blessed to have little helpers in the kitchen. While they aren’t quite delivering me a hot breakfast in bed just yet, I am delighted to see their interest in cooking and baking growing every day.

    Such a little cutie!!! I probably would’ve done the same thing if my mom enlisted me to help bake as a 3-year-old… But she rarely baked, so I never got a chance to eat preserves straight from the jar. Oh darn! ;) These muffins look incredible though Liz!

    These look wonderful, Liz! I would be happy as a clam if my kids made these for me on Mother’s Day. And really, who can blame Asher for eating the preserves straight from the jar?

    YUM! These look great Liz. I have some blackberry jam leftover from recently making Blackberry Pistachio Walnut Challah Bread (makinglifesweet.com/blackberry-pistachio-walnut-challah-bread/). Going to have to put it to good use and try these muffins out! :)
