• What is cinnamon? [a type of spice made from the peeled, dried and rolled bark of a south-east Asian tree; it can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes]
• Why do you beat the egg in a small bowl first, then add it to the mixture? [To ensure it is well combined before putting it with the other ingredients. If it were broken straight into the bowl, some of the individual parts of the egg might not get properly incorporated into the mixture.]
• Why is it important to try to get the mixture divided equally between the twelve muffin cases? [So that they all cook properly, at the same rate. If one were very small, it might burn; and if one were much bigger, it might be slightly undercooked in the middle. It also avoids arguments!]
• Check the food in the oven. Tidying up
• Wash up and put all equipment away. • Tidy up and wash all surfaces clean. Sweep the floor if necessary. • Hang up aprons.
Quick test/quiz • Name and describe two skills you used in this recipe and how you used them.

• What other dried fruits could you use in this recipe? [e.g. cranberries, raisins, apricots]
• Describe one piece of equipment and what you used it for. [e.g. measuring spoons, used so that the correct amount of cinnamon and baking powder was used]
• Bonus question: Spell ‘cinnamon’.
Word search • Ask the children to complete the activity sheet. [e.g. Word search [not completed for sample. Could be a bank of activities from which authors choose e.g. word search, sequencing pictures, sorting, matching pictures to words etc.]
• Ask the children to cut out, muddle up and then stick the recipe pictures back in the correct order.
• Use this to talk about the recipe and what they did. Review
1. What did you do well? 2. What would you do differently next time?
