There are so many decisions to make and all these responsibilities... it's exhausting.
Kids are so lucky, it's so natural to them. They are not like us, having to be conscious to relax, to free ourselves from our worries, to do yoga, go for a walk of fresh air to calm down.
I know they have their worries and their worries seem big to them, and they are, but they have no idea what's waiting for them.
I want a world that children do the shopping and the laundry and the cooking. Not because I am a fan of child labor, lol, but because they would do it so care free. And mommy will just play Duplo the whole day.
When Alon, my son, chooses his Bretzel every week on our weekly trip to the supermarket he has no concern whatsoever how much his Bretzel is going to cost, how does money gets into mommy's wallet and he doesn't even worry about disposing the bag of the Bretzel, which is half plastic and half paper, so how the hell does one suppose to recycle it if the bins are separated???
2tsp baking powder
100 g butter
vanilla pod, deseeded
3/4 cup milk
1 egg + 1 egg white
120g honey + more for drizzling
In a mixer bowl put the flour, baking powder, butter, salt and vanilla and mix till the mixture resembles sand. If you don't have a mixer you can do it using your hands, pinching the butter till it mixes into the flour. The consistency in the end should be the same.
Add the milk, eggs and honey and mix.
Grease a big pie dish and pour the cake batter into it.
Cut the plums in half, take the stone away and lay on the dough. Press all the plums a bit into the dough that it grows around them during baking.
Drizzle a bit of honey on top of the plums, this takes some of the plum juice out and the cake is more moisture.
Bake for 35 minutes, till the dough has browned but not too much.
