Cooking

ECE 3 have been very busy in Terms 2 and 3 cooking up a storm. We have made so many delicious things including truffles, scones, muffins and savoury toast. Thanks to our wonderful parent helpers who have made cooking possible!

Licorice allsorts slice

 125grams butter

160ml condensed milk

1x 250g packet of biscuits such as Marie

1/2 cup coconut

200gram dark cooking chocolate, chopped.

1tbs golden syrup

1x 375g packet of licorice allsorts, chopped

30grams copha

Method:

Brush a pan with melted butter to lightly grease. Line the base and sides with non stick baking paper, allowing it to overhang slightly.

Combine the butter, condensed milk and golden syrup in a medium bowl and microwave until butter is melted and mixture is smooth.

Add the biscuits, coconut and licorice allsorts and stir until just combined. Press the mixture into the base of the prepared pan and set aside for 30mins to set.

Place the chocolate and copha in a bowl and microwave until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Pour the chocolate mixture over the slice in the pan. Place in the fridge for 1hr to set. Cut into squares to serve.

 

Recipe 1- APPLE CRUMBLE

What we used:

  • 7 large green apples
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1tsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 3/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon (ground)
  • 2 tsp nutmeg (ground)
  • 2/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

Method:

1- Peel and core apples then cut into rough 1-2cm cubes. Place apples in large saucepan and cover with water. Simmer (but don’t boil) covered with lid on med-high until apples are just tender but not too soft (usually 5mins once water is simmering). Drain apples well and place in large bowl

2- Combine caster sugar and cinnamon (ensures even spread), then toss through the apples. If you like the apples to be less sweet and more tart you can omit the sugar in this step, though there may be excess juice as a result.

CRUMBLE MIX

3- Combine flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl until evenly mixed through.

4- Melt butter (do not burn or boil it) and add vanilla essence to butter, stir through.

5- Add butter mix to dry ingredients and mix well using a fork. Ensure all ingredients are moist and mixture has a crumbly texture.

6- Place apple mix evenly in medium casserole dish. Spread crumble mix over top of apple. Bake at 180 degrees C for 30-40minutes, or until crumble topping is slightly browned.

Recipe 2- SAVOURY TOAST

What we used:

  • 1x cup chopped bacon                            Bread (toast on one side)

Method:

  1. Collect 6-8 pieces of bread and toast them on one side under the grill.
  2. Get a bowl and add bacon, onion and cheese.
