Your homework will involve making biscuits (cookies) using the recipe below. If you cannot do this sometime this week, then try to calculate double the quantities, for your maths homework.
- Because we are learning about metamorphic rocks and cooking is very much like the process of making metamorphic rocks...there is pressure (mixing) and there is heat (from the oven) and the result is that the ingredients change their structure and how they look.
- Also, you may decide to DOUBLE the ingredients because you want to bring some in to school...This is great for your maths practice.
- Measuring will be really helpful for those of you who need some practice at accurately taking measurements.
- Oh, it's also because they are tasty .
The recipe for Metamorphic Munchables is shown below...they will be lavaly.
WARNING FROM SEB:
The cakes were very runny with the recipe's amount of flour...you may need to add some more flour.
125g caster sugar, one egg, 75g chocolate chips, 150g self raising flour, 75g soft butter, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence.
scales, a large bowl, a wooden spoon, a teaspoon, a dessert spoon, a greased baking sheet, a wire cooling rack, an oven and oven gloves.
What you do:
Ask an adult to turn on the oven to 190 C (375 F or Gas 5)
Cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg and vanilla essence.
Mix in the flour.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Use a dessert spoon to drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the greased baking sheet. Leave space for the mounds to spread as they cook.
Ask an adult to put the cookies in the oven. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. When they are ready, ask an adult to take them out of the oven and lift them on to a wire rack to cool and harden.
Enjoy your Metamorphic Munchables.
