Making Shortbread For The Burns Ceilidh:)

IMG_1363On Friday 23rd of January we had a Burns ceilidh, and I offered to make shortbread and the headteacher said yes. So the week beginning 19th I got all the ingredients ready and I started to prepare my shortbread. Then after I mixed all the ingredients in the bowl, I pushed it in to the tray and put it in the oven. Then the next day I made more shortbread in school before the ceilidh and when it was still really hot and in the oven my friend Eva walked in and she said it smelt like heaven! So I took it down where the ceilidh was going to be. Then at the ceilidh after some of the entertainments when it was half time everybody said they loved it:) So that was good:)



Baking for the Port Ellen Primary School

One day last week I made flapjacks for my class. I also gave some to the teachers aswell and they loved it:) Here is the recipe:)


* 250g Porridge Oats
* 125g Butter
* 125g Brown Sugar
* 2-3 tbsps Golden Syrup (depends how gooey you want it)

1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until fully mixed, but be careful not to overmix making sure the oats keep their texture.
2. Lightly grease a baking tin with butter and spoon in all the mixture.
3. Using the back of a spoon press into the corners so the mixture is flat and score the mixture into 12 squares.
4. Place in the oven and bake on 180 until golden brown (about 20 minutes).

If i had a photo i would show you a photo of them, sorry:(

In the weekend i am going to challenge myself by making Meringues:) Next week i plan to make shortbread for the school Burns ceilidh:)

Making Flapjacks

Hi, I was looking through my recipe book not knowing what to bake and then I said how about making flapjacks? But I didn’t have a recipe for it:( Because I didn’t have a recipe I just had to google one. So then I googled it and I found an amazing Nigella Lawson recipe. Here is the recipe-
125g Butter
125g Soft Brown Sugar
75g Golden Syrup
250g Rolled Oats

1.Pre-heat oven to 180 ºC/gas 4
Put the butter, sugar & syrup in a pan. Stir over a low heat until melted.
2.Mix in the oats Grease a 20×30 cm tin and pour in the mixture
3.Bake for 20 mins until golden brown
Cut into bars while warm then remove from tin when COLD.
4.Icing sugar can be sprinkled over the top and a glace cherry plonked in the centre of each slice to make Christmas flapjacks! Depending on the tin you use, consider lining it with baking/greaseproof paper as these get awfully sticky!

Sorry, I don’t have a picture to show you:(
I also made them for my class in school and everybody loved them❤️

Christmas Cake

On Saturday the 6th of December we had our Christmas Fayre. We normally have a Christmas cake, but this year we didn’t know anyone who could make it. One of the teachers ” Mrs Clark” said to me ‘because you are doing baking for your Endeavour, would you like to make the Cake for the school Fayre? So I went home and started to look for a recipe. A couple days later mum and I made the cake. Then we left if up on the shelf for a couple of days, then I iced the cake and I made it really cool, I made it look like real ice and snow!! The girl who won my cake was called Rachel Heads. A couple of days later my auntie met Rachel’s mum and she said the cake was amazing. This is what my cake looked like.
