Week 12

Thank you again for the wonderful effort you all made for our SPACE DAY. The costumes were amazing and we had a fantastic time. We made space rock cakes ( I will add the recipe as they were a huge success!), painted moon pictures, played space board games, painted 3D planets, learnt space facts, flew rockets, listened to a rocket story and performed a space dance! 


Makes 6 large rock cakes or 12 smaller

100g/3 and a half oz butter at room temperature
200g/7oz plain flour
2tsp baking powder
75g/2 and a half oz brown sugar
125g/4 and a half oz raisins
1 egg beaten
2 tbsp milk
Edible Glitter (our space dust)


Pre-heat the oven to 200 C/400 F/Gas Mark 6


Line a couple of baking trays with silicon-coated baking paper or use some reusable baking tray liners.

Put the flour and baking powder into a bowl and then added the margarine and crumb the mix with your finger tips together to add to the mixture.


Children always love the next bit break the egg and whisk the milk and egg. Use a spoon or mix the wet and dry ingredients together he would use his hands. This recipe is great as both methods work just as well.


Divide the mix into 6 large lumps (tennis Ball) or 12 smaller (golf ball sized) and place on the baking tray with enough space to expand.


Put in the oven for between 13 and 20 minutes (this will depend on your oven and you are after a lightly golden color to the surface).


Once they were cooked remove and let cool.


Then Sprinkle with Space dust and enjoy.
