-KNOCK AT DOOR
-Hello, Fleur. Hey, Daisy.
Hey, Jessica. Hey, Tanay. Hey, Jose. Thanks for coming!
Do you want to know what delicious recipe we're going to cook?
Today's mouthwatering recipe is going to be...
..chunky banana bread!
-Mmm, doesn't that look tasty?
We're about ready to make a start.
-There's one thing we need to do first. Do you know?
-Wash your hands.
# Roll up your sleeves Give your hands a wash
# With slippy-dippy soap Splish-splash-splosh
-# Have you done your hands?
-Washed and dried?
# Sleeves rolled up Aprons high
# What can you do? I can cook! #
-Let's get cooking, everyone.
To make chunky banana bread, we're going to need
-a banana. So has everyone got their banana?
Can you pretend to be a banana? Can you go like this?
Can you pretend to be a banana too?
We need to start by peeling the banana, like this.
See how many peels you can do.
-How many have you got, Daisy?
-I've got four.
And then, break it up and put it in your bowl.
-And smash it up!
Now, using the back of our fork, we're going to mash it all up.
That's it, give it a good squash.
This is really fun, I love squashing.
Can you pretend to mash at home as well? Like this, with your hands.
Can you get all the lumps out, everyone?
Jose, brilliant technique! All your lumps are disappearing.
Shall we try and mash it like Jose's mashing it?
We have expert mashers in the kitchen today!
And now, we're going to add some vegetable oil to our banana mix.
So pour it in. Whee!
Ah, this is going to be so tasty.
We need to give it a mix. So mix up the vegetable oil.
We're going to call this... our wet bowl.
What do you think we're going to need next in our recipe?
Let's put you to the test. Today's ingredient for you to guess.
What do you think it's going to be?
Now, let me give you some clues.
The missing ingredient for our chunky banana bread
can be really heavy when you put it in a bag.
So could it be...
a bowling ball?!
You're right, you can't eat a bowling ball.
Now, let's try again.
The missing ingredient is really yummy and sweet. So could it be...
..a lollipop?! You can't put a lollipop in banana bread, can you?
Let's try one more time.
The missing ingredient can be really heavy when you put it in a bag,
it's also really yummy and sweet.
And one more clue. It can be sprinkled.
So could it be...
..sugar? Did you work it out? The missing ingredient is sugar.
Now, this is a special kind of sugar, called golden caster sugar.
We're going to need some in our chunky banana bread.
There's lots of types of sugar, but how do you think it's made?
Let's go and find out on our computer, come on!
Sugar is made from a plant called sugar cane.
Sugar cane is grown in very hot countries.
When it's ready, the cane is cut down.
it's washed and mashed up with water so that the juice can be taken out.
The sugar cane juice is then taken to a place called a refinery,
where it's cooked until it's very hot.
The juice is then left to cool down
until it turns into lots of tiny pieces of sugar, which we eat.
And here is our caster sugar. What will sugar do to our banana bread?
-What do you reckon?
-Make it sweet.
It's going to make it lovely and sweet and yummy.
To our sugar, we add flour.
Get your cups and pour it in.
And now, we need to add a teaspoon of baking powder.
Baking powder is the magic ingredient
that's going to make our banana bread rise up
into a lovely shape when it goes in the oven.
Can you pretend to rise, like this?
OK, we need to take a teaspoon and then pat it down, like this.
Then, when it's nice and flat, put it in your dish.
We'll call this our dry bowl.
Now, we need to break an egg into a cup.
Take your egg and your cup, everyone.
We're going to knock on the door. Ready?
Knock, knock, knock.
carefully open it with your fingers until your egg pops out.
And now, we need to use a fork to whisk it up.
And this is called whisking.
Can everyone make a whizz sound? Like this.
Bring in your wet bowl and pour the eggy mixture into your wet bowl.
It looks a bit like banana smoothie.
It does a bit, actually, Fleur.
Now, we're going to add my favourite thing... The raisins.
Who can pretend to be a raisin? Squeeze yourself up really small,
so you look like a raisin. Look, raisin face!
Can you do that? Raisin face.
Let's add our raisins into our bowl.
And give it all a good mix.
What do you think our mixture looks like, Jessica?
Banana milk shake.
It's all slimy, isn't it?
We're going to add vanilla extract,
which is going to add loads of yummy flavour to our banana bread.
It's really strong, so you only need a little tiny bit.
So pour that in. Whee!
-Is this enough?
-Yep, put it in your bowl.
And give it a mix, so it's all mixed in.
Oh, this is going to taste so yummy.
The raisins are slipping everywhere when you do that.
And now, we're going to add our wet bowl to our dry bowl.
We take the spoon out. We're going to hold it, like this. You ready?
That's it, Jessica. Ready? And pour.
We need to give it all a really good stir.
You've got to be really careful, to try and keep it all in the bowl.
-You could twist it around, get some exercise!
-It's really hard.
You're doing a great job.
Give it a good old mix.
Mine's all sticky.
Who's still got flour in their bowl?
You've got to mix more, come on!
-But it's too tough.
-But you're very strong, aren't you, Jessica?
Look how strong I am!
Jose, that's brilliant. That's right, well done.
Now you need to take a loaf tin, that can go in the oven, like this.
-We're going to do some painting. Who likes painting?
So, take a brush, like this, and dip it in a little bit of olive oil.
And we're going to paint all the sides of the dish.
Why do we paint our dish with olive oil?
-To make the...bread to not stick.
-That's right, Jessica.
We paint the dish, so the banana bread
doesn't stick to the sides when we put it in the oven later on.
When you've done that,
we're going to pour our lovely banana mixture into our tin.
Like this, watch.
Use your spoon to get the rest out.
Brilliant, Jose, that's fantastic. Well done.
My bowl's slippery, so it keeps falling in!
-You can use your fingers to gloop it off the spoon.
-We like getting messy in the kitchen!
-It's all gooey.
Now it's time to put our chunky banana bread
into the oven for 40 minutes, but remember, with ovens, beware,
because it's hot, so get an adult to help.
Come on, everyone.
Oh, that looks so good. Lovely and gloopy.
Whilst our chunky banana bread is cooking,
it's time to...
All: Tidy up!
It's always good to put away, so we can use things another day.
So now, it's time to remember what we've made today.
# Peel the banana Peel it, peel it
