Bake the British Isles: Cooking Club
Helena England, BA Hons, PGCE, MA
Do you love shortbread, scones, teacakes, sticky toffee pudding, Welsh cakes, soda bread and more? Do you want to learn some traditional British recipes? Bake along with me, a UK teacher, and find out more about England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales too.
I have been running baking classes for several years, and it is a privilege to share the recipes on Outschool with chefs from all over the world. I live in the UK, and have picked some classic British recipes to share with you in this friendly, relaxed class. We start by saying hello, and then I give a short introduction to the bake, perhaps explaining which region it is from, or the tradition behind it. Then we all get cooking! I bake along too, and show your chef exactly what to do at...
Students will learn to bake a new recipe each week, and also learn about British food, traditions and geography at the same time.
I have been baking for as long as I can remember, and love to share my bakes and my recipes too.
Homework OfferedJust in case we don't have time to fully bake the recipes, you can finish baking them afterwards.
The ingredients and equipment will be posted in the class each week. Most of the recipes use basic ingredients such as milk, butter, eggs, sugar and flour, plus a few extra things like dried fruit, spices, baking powder and black treacle/molasses. Basic baking equipment will be needed eg measuring cups/weighing scales; mixing bowls; wooden spoons, spatulas, rolling pins; baking sheets, baking paper, cake tins etc. An electric whisk will be useful when we make meringues.
As this is a baking class and we will be using a hot oven and other kitchen equipment, it is essential a parent is on hand to supervise. These bakes contain flour, eggs and dairy products; if your child is allergic to these ingredients, this class will not be suitable for them.
