Plum Jam Tarts.

The last group in 4CC to make their treat for their celebration event joined me in the cafe to make plum jam tarts. Just like last weeks groups, they each made their own pastry and filled the tarts with plum jam made with last years fruit from our own tree at ACE. The delicious tarts were enjoyed by both children and parents!

Another Busy Week.

First I must apologise for having no photos this week. I left my iPad at home😬. However we have still been very busy in the cafe!

Tuesday saw a ‘pass it on’ demonstration of delicious onion bhajis.

On Wednesday a group of children from 3DC made fruit crumbles and sold them on the playground. Were you a lucky customer?

Then on Thursday some of the students from 4DM used some of the ‘fuel for schools’ food to make Collcanon for their class mates. A traditional Irish recipe, using potatoes, cabbage and onions, it was enjoyed by the majority of Mr Moore’s class.

This morning we served coffee and tea both before Ahmed’s  assembly and for the open day of our September intake. Finally 4CC made jam tarts for their celebration event next Friday. They each made their own pastry and filled the tarts with plum jam made from the plums picked in our own orchard. A treat to look forward too.

Hot Cross Buns For Easter.

4CC made giant hot cross buns to take to St. John’s Church for our Easter service. Oscar has already proved he is a wizz at kneading. They tested one of them out on their class mates. Did you enjoy your sample 4CC?

Science Week!

Baking is all about science so this week 4CC watched as Mrs Walker demonstrated how to make honeycomb. This is not to be tried without an adult, as it involves boiling sugar! However it’s fun to watch, and have a taste, when it has cooled down.

Caramalise the sugar and golden syrup then whisk in the bicarbonate of soda. Watch it fizz!

Can you explained the science behind this?

Lentil Curry With 4CC!

Using some of our ‘fuel for schools’ delivery, a group from 4CC made a delicious green lentil curry to share with their classmates. It was an absolute hit and the class have requested more curries to try!


Bread And Butter Pudding.

Once again, a group of children from 4CC, helped to make bread and butter pudding, to share with their classmates. However, today we tried using wholemeal bread, chocolate chips and a chocolate flavoured custard.

The resulting pudding was again delicious. We discussed the merits of wholemeal versus white bread and raisins versus chocolate chips. Overall we think white bread with chocolate chips would be perfect!
