Bankfield Pupils Create a Stir for Christmas!

Budding chefs at Bankfield Nursery and Pre-Prep got ready for this week by making puddings on ‘stir-up Thursday’. The boys and girls followed a traditional recipe that included dried fruits, mixed peel, eggs, sugar, breadcrumbs, orange juice, flour and spices.

The Christmas Pudding Club lesson was led by the ’s Catering Manager and trained chef, Craig Robinson, who described why each ingredient was added and in what order.


Craig explained:

It’s so important to involve children with baking at a young age and get them inspired about cooking by feeling the different textures as they add ingredients to the mix.



Deputy Head of Bankfield, Charlotte Cryer said:

We were delighted that Mr Robinson was able to make time in his very busy schedule to teach us the basics of baking. It’s always a delight to see our youngest children so engaged and having fun whilst learning about where food comes from and different ingredients.

After the ingredients were mixed the all-important finger in the mixture taste-test was applied before being poured into cake tins to cook. The individual puddings were then baked by the catering team at Ladies’ College for the children to take home and enjoy with their parents.
