A Sprinkle of Sugar – Food Technology

Posted in: Education, Latest News


In Food Technology this week, Ms Ardis taught our Year 7 students how to make American Pancakes.

In pairs Students took turns weighting and measuring ingredients, mixing it into a batter and frying them on a pan. The difficulty is trying to achieve the right thickness of mixture and heating the pan at the correct temperature to ensure pancakes cook evenly.  

Normally Students spend one lesson to prep their food and another lesson to cook, but this time there were able to make it all in one period.

Cooking on the hob requires a great deal of safety, especially when using a frying pan on medium heat. Students displayed great team work and all left with a tray full of mini pancakes for their lunch break.
