Mommy and daughter bonding with Maya Cake Flour!

For most moms, the kitchen is their kingdom where all sorts of magical things happen. I was lucky enough to grow up with a grandma and a mom who could cook up the yummiest lunches and dinners. I especially looked forward to Noche Buena because that was when they would go all out. Hamonado, Ube Halaya… you name it! Unfortunately, I’m not like them. I can’t cook to save my life and there was a time when my kids would ask why I can’t be like Auntie this and that who could cook up all sorts of yummy stuff for them to eat.

Maya Cake FlourI’m 40-something now and that hasn’t changed. I still can’t be found anywhere near the kitchen. But Maya, a brand I’ve known all my life, believes otherwise. One day, I found a big chest and some gift boxes on my doorstep.

Maya Cake FlourIt seems Maya wants me to bake… with my daughter! The chest contained every single thing we could possibly need! I love it!

Maya Cake FlourAnd the gift boxes? All the ingredients were in them!

Maya Cake FlourWe got a total of 4 recipes from Maya and our first assignment was to make gasp… Peanut Butter & Choco Chip Cake… using Maya Cake Flour.

Maya Cake FlourMy daughter and I donned our aprons and whipped out the recipe booklet. Challenge accepted, game on! I just hope it’s edible, hahahaha!

Maya Cake FlourI taught my daughter how to grease a baking pan and she insisted on doing it herself.

Maya Cake FlourUm… I had to google how to line the pan with a baking sheet. Actually, I watched a YouTube video, lol. And this is why I need my smartphone beside me when I bake.

Maya Cake FlourGotta love the Frozen-themed Maya Cake Flour!

Maya Cake FlourMy daughter and I did every step together!

Maya Cake FlourShe has always had a penchant for cooking and baking so baking proved to be a super fun bonding activity for us. We started by combining the dry ingredients.

Maya Cake FlourThen we creamed butter, peanut butter, and sugar in another bowl. The instructions were very easy to follow. We added eggs, milk, and the dry ingredients afterwards. No sweat! Coming from me, that means it’s really easy to do, lol!

Maya Cake FlourMy daughter was so awed at how all the solid ingredients transformed into smooth and creamy cake batter. It’s the magic of Maya Cake Flour!

Maya Cake FlourThe last step involved folding in semi-sweet chocolate chips into the cake batter, after which we poured it all into the cake pan and popped it in our pre-heated oven.

Maya Cake FlourWhile the cake was baking, we proceeded to prepare the Chocolate Buttercream that we would frost it with.

Maya Cake FlourWow our kitchen smelled really good while our cake was baking in the oven! I baked the cake for 35 minutes.

Maya Cake FlourI transferred the cake onto a glass plate.

Maya Cake FlourWe let the cake cool for a bit before frosting it.

Maya Cake FlourTadaa!

Maya Cake FlourThis is actually our first legit baking session. In the past, we would play-bake using Japanese candy kits. Thank you Maya for that much-needed push!
