French Toast!

This morning my group and I made French toast which was delicious. Firstly we set out our equipment then we followed the methods on the board. The ingredients that were needed was five eggs and half of a cup of milk. Then we heated the pan on the element and melted the butter on top.

I was working with Alexandra and Vika so we had to take turns frying the French toast. I've really enjoyed this weeks tech I hope we make it again.

Sponge Cake!

Today at Technicraft we made sponge cake. This time I was careful not to over whip the batter.

The ingredients that we needed was one cup of S.R.F ( self rising flour) three eggs and one cup of white sugar.

The first method we had to do was to combine the egg and sugar until it was a light and creamy texture. Next we had to add our flour and mix it until we couldn't see it any more. The final step was to heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and then put our cake in.

After baking in the oven for 15 minutes it was ready to eat. This is how our cake looked.

Vanilla Muffins

The ingredients we used to make our muffins was one cup of sugar, four eggs and one and a half cup of S.R.F (Self Rising Flour).

To begin with we whisked the eggs and the sugar until it was the consistency of light and fluffy cream. This time I made sure not to over whip the muffin. After leaving it to cook in the oven for approximately 20 minutes it was over baked and it was burnt but I took off the burnt pieces.

It was yummy!!

On Wednesday the year eight students from Ruapotaka and St Pius School was working together to make some delicious nachos. While the year sevens were making healthy fruit salad. The first step to making our nacho is you have to slice and dice the onions then you have to fry them with oil. Next we put the mince,tomato paste and the baked beans into the pan. Once it was all combined together we put our nachos base on our plates of chips. Now it was the fun and easy part eating it. Our nachos were so delicious I can't wait for next week. This is how our one looked.

We're Baking Sponge Rolls!😀

Last week was a bit of a surprise because we were told that we were going to be working with St Pius.We all were divided into groups of three which was A B and C.  I was selected to be in group A and I was so excited because we were going to be cooking. Collaborating with another school was very new to us but as we were cooking we felt a little comfortable around each other.

The ingredients for the sponge rolls are one cup of SRF ( Self Rising Flour) flour, one cup of sugar, one third of a  cup of oil and four eggs. First we combined the eggs sugar and oil together then once it was mixed we used a hand mixer to whip the batter until it was a light and fluffy like texture kind of like cream. After ten minuets in the oven it was over flowing so be careful not to over mix. But at least it tasted good also this was a good practice next time I'm going to take my time. This is what it looked like after I scraped off the edges.

Back To School

Finally it's 2018 and I'm so excited to see my friends and class mates. As I was walking to school I felt nervous because I just remembered that I am a year eight. As an intermediate student there are high expectations for me because the whole school looks up to the older seniors. We have to be good role models.

This year I am going to set my goals higher and I'm going to try and be better than before. I am apprehensive for week 6 because we have our Manaiakalani test which is writing. I hope I do well.

Famous Cathedrals

Cathedral of Saint Patrick and Saint Joseph.jpg

There were so many Cathedrals to choose from but I had to choose St Patrick's in Auckland. It was built on 1848 until 1845. If my calculations are correct than it would have taken 33 years which seems like a lot of hard work if you ask me. I hope you've learned more about St Patrick's Cathedral.
