Pan de Campo with Dried Cherries, Blueberries, and White Chocolate Chips

Pan de Campo with Dried Cherries, Blueberries, and White Chocolate Chips

I was recently sent a free trial of Little Passports, a Global Adventure to try out with my kids. It’s a really neat idea where depending on what you sign up for, your kids will get monthly packages sent to them which teaches them about different states or different countries. We were sent packets about New York, Florida, Nebraska, and Texas.  The kit included booklets on the different states, a disposable camera, a large map of the United States, a travel journal, a scratch guide, stickers, and a field guide. My kids had a blast learning about the different states, doing puzzles, and drawing pictures. Each state comes with a recipe for local food. My kids picked this Pan de Campo bread (camp bread) which is the official state bread of Texas. The recipe was extremely simple to make and easily adaptable. The kids decided they wanted to add white chocolate chips, dried cherries, and dried blueberries to the dough. Their bread needed to cook longer but it turned out wonderful. Both kids gobbled it up and said that it was fantastic. They were quite proud of their creation and so was I.

The Little Passports is a great way to spend the afternoon with your kids and they will love it. My daughter, who is 10½, said she liked everything about it. My son, who is 8, said he really liked making the recipe and doing the puzzles. I loved that my kids learned about the different states and created something together using teamwork.  Click here for more information about The Little Passports and their monthly packages.

How to Make a Pan de Campo with Dried Cherries, Blueberries, and White Chocolate Chips

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a round baking pan with cooking spray.

Combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and sugar together in a large bowl then mix until well combined.

It’s interesting how different my kids are in the kitchen. My boy is a bit assertive…
… and a touch silly
While my daughter is careful to follow the instructions…
… and she’s calm and confident

Add the milk and oil then mix well. Add the white chocolate chips and dried fruit then knead with hands until well combined. Roll the dough into a circle 1/2-1 inch thick.

Ready to bake!

Place into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through and the bottom is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. Slice and serve with butter if desired. Enjoy.

Happily enjoying their creation!

  1. What a cool idea about the state packages. I love stuff like that! I have been out of town more than in town lately, so I am way behind on reading blogs. Your kids have grown SO much!!!!!
    The pan looks muy bien!!!
    : ) Kris

  2. I think teaching the kids about other states is a great idea and sounds like a wonderful activity for all who participate, especially since so many never leave their own state or that other even exist! (Didn’t realize that was even an issue until my kids were in school!) Anyway great program and yummy recipe too! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer~

  3. What a fantastic idea! I think it’s fantastic that the kids get to learn about different states and to connect cooking with it! Okay, I might be even more excited because your kids got to study about Nebraska… and since that is where I grew up…. well, I might be a bit bias, what can I say? 🙂

  4. It’s wonderful that you found an activity for the kids that keeps them busy together, and teaches them something while they’re not looking! I remember when your son was just starting Kindergarten, and it’s astonishing that so much time has passed.

  5. This is such a fun idea for helping kids to learn geography! And I love that each kit includes a recipe…what better way to learn than through food!
