A part of our new timetable is to bake once a week!
So, our first baking lesson took place and we made Chocolate truffles! And here is how we did it:
100g milk chocolate drops
25g icing sugar
50g plain cake (but we used marble cake)
4 tablespoons of chocolate sugar strands
small paper cases
1. Boil water in a saucepan. When bubbling, remove from the heat.
2. Put the chocolate drops and butter in to a heatproof bowl into the saucepan and allow to melt. Take the bowl out of the saucepan and allow to cool slightly.
3. Weigh the cake and crumble into pieces. Weigh the icing sugar.
4. Add the crumbled cake and icing sugar into the bowl and mix very well. Allow the mixture to cool.
5. Put the chocolate sugar strands onto a plate. When the mixture is firm and thick, make balls either with your hands or a teaspoon and put it into the chocolate strands until each ball is covered.
6. Put them into the paper cases and once all balls have been made, put them in the fridge for 30 mins. Transfer to an airtight container and they can be stored in the fridge.
It was a nice baking session with my daughter. I taught her how to use the scales to measure. All the way through though, she kept asking me if it is time to lick the bowl! I think she remembered that from the time we made the chocolate swirls (see my other post under the science lesson category). Til next week from the baking team…salaam!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
