8 tried and tested recipes for year 9 pupils, includes ingredients and methods along with a space for the pupils to write the dates they will be cooking.
Tried and tested recipes, on a sheet to handout to pupils with room for them to add the dates they are cooking. The year 10 recipes also includes a recipe for Christmas Cake that I cook with them in small steamed sponge tins (Simpson pudding from Morrisons).
Recipes used with year 10 pupils in the autumn term. With one hour lessons I was looking for specific skills to develop, so some recipes use standard components (e.g. they have made pastry before so using a ready made pastry case for lemon meringue). Also includes a Christmas cake recipe that we make in small steamed sponge tins, I make a competition of it and it teaches them finishing techniques, the tradition of Christmas cakes and is also fun.
8 tried and tested recipes on a sheet to hand out to pupils, with list of ingredients required and methods. Also included is a space for the pupils to write the date they are cooking each recipe. I have also recipe sheets for other year groups, and a bundle with year 7-10.
I use this recipe with year 10’s. They make a batch in pairs and divide the mixture between 2 10cm tins. We use steamed sponge pudding tins, as they are small and don’t require long in the oven. You can get Simpsons sponge tins from Morrisons, but historically we used Heinz (can’t find them in the shops). The pupils then have half a lesson marzipaning the cakes, half a lesson flat icing and then just before Christmas we put on santa hats, listen to Christmas music and decorate them. We have a competition that the staff judge to choose the top 3 cakes. The kids love it, brings back some old Christmas traditions as well as teaching them finishing techniques.
I use this with the my year 10 pupils as an end of unit test. I have tried to recreate the style of the GCSE exam with a mix of question types - multiple choice, one word and more details questions.
Information hand out for pupils on the functional and chemical properties of protein ingredients when setting a chilled or baked dish. Great to aid those teaching the new AQA NEA1 Food Investigtaion task, that are none specialists.
