It’s that time of the Bakery term for the Create Your Own Quick Bread Project!
This activity builds on the Basic Ingredients unit. Students use a ratio formula to create their own muffin recipe. They evaluate the muffin and change their recipe based on their knowledge of ingredients.
When they have finalized a recipe they produce a finished product and “advertise” it with a 30 second or 1 minute commercial. Their commercial markets the muffin based on flavor, appearance, color, and texture, and includes a calorie count and cost-per-unit.
Students have quite the complex rubric to follow which you can download here. They just made their final products muffins yesterday and the results are delicious! Student favorites include the Pear-Walnut, Nutella Espresso, and Sweet Bacon. I look forward to watching their commercials tomorrow.
