Sundried Tomato and Basil Rolls And A Dettol Giveaway

Sundried tomato and basil rolls

As a Mum of three boys, one thing I think is important for me to teach them is how to cook. Luckily my boys love cooking. The problem? Let's just say that sometimes cooking with the kids can get a little bit messy so it is always useful to have some Dettol wipes on hand to clean up the spillages and kill the germs too.

As all little viewers of "I can cook!" will know, you start by washing your hands. The Dettol kitchen no touch hand wash really is great when your hands are covered in dough mix as it senses your hands are there and dispenses the soap. Very clever!

washing hands with dettol handwash

Middle man and I decided we would make some sundried tomato and basil rolls for our tea.

We started by making a basic bread recipe. You will need:

500g of strong white flour
7g Easy bake yeast sachet
1 1/2 tsp caster sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
50g melted butter
300ml of warm water.

Mix all the ingredients above in a large bowl.

Then came the kneading part. Cue lots of screams of delight that he had sticky hands! (You should knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for 10 minutes.) We sprayed down the table with the Dettol spray as it kills 99.9% of germs. Once you have finished kneading place the dough back in the mixing bowl and leave it to rise so that it doubles it's size.

After the dough has risen, mix in some chopped sundried tomatoes and basil. Split the dough into round balls and bake in an oven at 180C for around 15-20 minutes.

There is nothing quite like freshly baked bread with some melted butter on top. Middle man was very pleased with his efforts and thanks to Dettol, cleaning up the mess was nice and straight forward too.

Dettol have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win a bundle of goodies (similar to this one) so that cooking with the kids can be cleaned up easily! Just complete the rafflecopter below. Good Luck!

    Cheesy
    Heats

    It is traditional
    to buy exotic cheeses at Christmas, but in our household they often get left
    until well after the celebrations before being eaten. My son, William, (when
    aged 9) came up with the idea of putting two different cheeses onto a cheese
    cracker, put another cracker on top to form a sandwich, and then microwave until
    the cheese has just melted. Great, that's my son.
