What’s your favourite recipe for playdate food?

What’s your favourite food to take on a playdate?

Do you bake all day or stop at a bakery on the way? What do you think is an appropriate playdate recipe for Mums & Bubs alike?

Do you love to bake for hours before a playdate to take along an indulgent treat for Mums & Bubs, or do you stop off at the bakery on the way for a treat to share? That is the question…

I love to bake but for me time is always of the essence so more often then I would like to admit I’m a duck into the bakery on the way for a lovely variety of pastry kinda gal.

So my thoughts are this: Why not share your favourite recipe you whip together when you are off to a playdate. When I do have time, one of my fave recipes for a playdate is thanks to LovingEarth.  

My Playdate Food: Raw Organic Carrot Cake

For the icing:


  1. In a food processor, blend the carrots until they are shredded- but do not go overboard and puree, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until combined, leaving the mixture quite chunky.
  2. Press mixture down firmly into a lined cake tin and place in the fridge.
  3. Process all of the icing ingredients in the food processor until smooth.
  4. Spread icing over the cake using either your hands (you may need to wet them to prevent icing from sticking) or the back of a spoon.
  5. Top with a few chopped walnuts, sprinkle with cinnamon and place in the fridge to set for at least 2 hours.
