Hello, lovely to see you.
I've been getting ready for today's recipe.
It'll be so delicious, and I can't wait.
-KNOCK AT DOOR
Hi, everyone! Come in! Come on!
Do you want to know what delicious recipe we're cooking today?
Today's yummy recipe is going to be...
Gold-digger buns. Now, doesn't that look tasty?
We're just about ready to make a start,
but there's one thing we need to do first. Do you know what it is?
Wash our 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?
-# What can you do?
-I can cook! #
-Let's get cooking, everyone!
To make our gold-digger buns,
we need six ready-to-eat dried apricots.
-Everyone got them?
-What do you think they look like?
Who wants the gold? The pirates want the gold!
Now...we're going to take a clean pair of scissors
and snip up the apricots till they look like small nuggets of gold.
And remember, when using scissors,
everybody knows that it's always best to point them at your...
-That's right. Are you ready to snip?
-Let's go, then.
Why do you think the apricots are wrinkly, everyone?
Because they're squishy!
I think they're wrinkly, because they've been sunbathing.
No! How can they be sunbathing?
They've gone all wrinkly in the sun.
No! A plant can't sunbathe.
-Anyway, I'm already done!
-That's fantastic, Lucy. Well done.
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?
Let me give you some clues.
The missing ingredient for our gold-digger buns is yellow.
So, could it be...?
You can't eat a rubber duck, can you?
Let's try again. The missing ingredient is yellow,
and it's also creamy. So could it be...?
Banana trifle doesn't go in a bun!
Let's try one more time, shall we?
The missing ingredient is yellow, it's creamy.
Shall I give you one more clue?
It melts. So could it be...?
The missing ingredient is butter.
Did you work it out?
We're going to need butter in our gold-digger buns.
Let's find out more about butter on our computer. Come on!
Butter is made from cream which comes from cow's milk.
Cows eat a lot of grass,
which their bodies turn into delicious milk.
First of all the cows are milked by machines.
The milk goes through the machines to separate the milk from the cream.
The cream then gets churned round and round
until it becomes stiff and hard.
Leftover milk is drained off,
and the butter is lifted out.
It's weighed and shaped into blocks so it can be sold in the shops.
We've got some chopped-up butter here.
Now we'll take some of this magic self-raising flour.
-Does anyone know why we need to use self-raising flour?
the cake rises up in the oven.
That's right. Self-raising flour is a magic ingredient,
that will make our gold-digger buns rise up in the oven like this...
Can you pretend to rise at home like this as well?
Now, let's put out flour into a bowl of soft butter.
-I can't reach it!
-Lucy will get it for you... ..Thank you, Lucy.
Sprinkle it in.
-Doesn't matter if you spill some.
We can get messy in my kitchen.
Everyone, show me your fingers. Can you do spider fingers?
We'll use our fingertips to tickle all the butter with the flour.
-Are you ready?
-Three, two, one.
-Let's get tickling!
Tickle, tickle, tickle. Let's get tickling!
Stan, do you like tickling?
-Why do you like tickling?
-Because I love getting messy.
-Who's got messy hands?
Ugh! Keep tickling.
How do we know it's ready?
When it's turned into...?
Crumbs... Try and get all the lumps out, like me. Can you do that?
Tickle, tickle, tickle...
-I'm nearly done!
-I think I am done.
Now we'll add some golden caster sugar.
So, take your bowl, everyone.
And we'll pour it in - off we go. Whee!
-Mine is in one big puddle, there.
-That's all right.
-Look at mine!
Do you know what we're going to do now? We're going to hide
the gold from the pirates. So take the gold off your plate
and sprinkle it into your mix. Now, let's pretend
that the mixture is sand
and the apricots are gold and we've got to hide all the gold
in the sand, away from the pirates. So try and hide it, everyone.
Have you hidden all your gold? I think the pirates are coming. Quick!
I can see a pirate - quickly!
There's no pirates coming!
There are - I've seen one round the corner.
He's in the back garden.
-Have you hidden your gold?
-I have nearly.
-I have nearly.
And now we're going to break an egg into a cup.
We're going to knock on the door. Ready?
Knock, knock, knock...
until it cracks
-and then open it up with your fingers.
Mine is a happy egg!
-Mine's a happy egg!
-Mine's a happy egg!
And now we're going to whizz it round like a cement mixer.
Why don't you pretend to stir at home, like this?
I'm going really fast!
It's very noisy!
OK, and stop stirring.
And now let's add the eggy mixture to our other mixture. Ready?
-Who's ready to make it sticky?
-Well, then, let's start mixing.
Oh, this is cold!
So keep going till you've got a sticky bowl like this.
And if it's too sticky, you can always add a bit more flour.
Look at mine!
Mine is getting into a big ball.
I've got it into a big ball.
Next we're going to take this and we're going to sprinkle
some flour. And it's a bit like sprinkling snow. Are you ready?
-Let's sprinkle snow!
Mine is all gone!
-Make sure you spread it all over your mat, Anna.
Mine's all gone.
And this is the part where we get really sticky on our fingers.
So we're going to take the mixture out of the bowl...
..and we're going to make it into a ball and put it on our mat.
Ugh! My fingers are all sticky!
Now we're going to make six pieces -
Can you see the gold nuggets coming out of the sides of them?
Don't worry if they're different sizes, because you can take some
from one of the others.
I've got one big one there.
And now we're going to take a baking tray
with some baking paper on top of it
and put all of our gold-digger buns on top.
And make sure that you leave a gap between your gold-digger buns,
because they're going to grow when they're in the oven.
-Spread them out a bit more, Anna.
They all look brilliant.
And now...it's time to put our gold-digger buns in a hot oven
for 15 to 20 minutes.
But remember - with ovens, beware, because it's hot in there!
So get an adult to help you.
Come on, everyone!
Thank you, Amber.
