Spring break is the perfect time to get the kids cooking.  Most kids love getting their hands dirty in the kitchen – it’s just as much fun as an art project.

We had the kids in mind when we devised this recipe for an “icebox” cake (did you know that fridges were called iceboxes way back when?). It’s easy to make and  requires no precise measurements. Let the kids decide what proportions of homemade jam, dried cranberries and vanilla yogurt to use. We bet they’ll be grinning from ear to ear when they present the fruit of their labours!

Steps

  1. Place strawberries, lemon juice and sugar in a pan. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until strawberries have thawed. Add white chia seeds and mix well. Set aside (or refrigerate if preparing jam in advance).

  2. Layer ingredients in a bread pan or a glass dish with tall sides, alternating vanilla yogurt, strawberry jam and whole cranberries. Finish with a layer of yogurt and crumble broken biscuits over the top as a garnish.

  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
