Pancakes - Savoury and Sweet
This session is about cooking pancakes, both savoury and sweet. As with other sessions, students will revisit many skills and techniques, therefore making them more confident cooks. It also provides you with the opportunity to assess students' practical capability. You could use the practical observation sheet to help.
During this session, students will make either Sweet mini-pancakes or Savoury pancakes. These have been chosen as they improve essential batter making and shallow frying skills, act as a reminder for the safe use of the hob and can be cooked by students easily at home for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. If your students are intolerant to gluten, use gluten free flour.
There is lots of room for students to be creative, selecting different types of ingredients that could be combined into the dishes. You could get your students to use the Sweet pancakes or Savoury pancakes recipe writing frames before cooking to develop their own ideas. The students’ own recipe creations could then be used in this session.
