In another bowl, whisk melted butter, castor sugar and 2 eggs till the contents double and become light. pour the liquid mixture into the contents of the dry bowl and mix gently by cutting and folding the batter in the shape of the number 8. Add half a cup of milk to get the right consistency, 1 tsp of vanilla essence and a dash of few chocochips.

    @Vicky Hey Roopa, Thanks a lot. Since it is summer, you can add a generous dollop of vanilla, chocolate or butterscotch ice-cream to make it more soul-satisfying. I understand it is high on calories, but we can cheat with what we eat once in a while, isn't it?

    Tips to help toddlers develop motor skills.
    Everything from buttoning a shirt to tying shoes requires fine motor skills. I hardly remember my parents buying toys for us those day. Very few toys were bought and in fact there was no categorised toys to help us learn motor skills and all. So, here are few tips that how can you help your child develop motor skills without buying expensive toys. You can use this to reduce screen time too.

    ?Let your little one finger feed as much as possible. Picking up food with her fingers will help her develop a pincer grasp ,using thumb and first finger.

    ? If you have beads of ur normal chain and thread give the baby a thread to put beads one by one on to the thread. This needs supervision and it's not expensive too. Straws can be used as beads, to thread onto something.

    ?Opening a zipper bag and closing it is a motor skill developing activity.

    ?Around 2 years , provide small crayons that fit into your little ones hands and let them scribble on a piece of paper.

    ?Help your baby open and close the latches of the doors or their own sippers. Scribbling with a pencil or help with a chalk n a slate board.

    ?Buy a therma coal board help ur kid punch a hole with pencil ,its another motor skill activity.

    ?Use a regular piggy banks or a recycled container and encourage your child to hold 2 or 3 coins in the hand and push them through the hole in the box one at a time without dropping the others.

    ?Use the clothes pins to pick up and transfer items from one container to another.

    ?Get your child to squash, squeeze, roll and pound with the play dough or atta.
