Ready, steady, cook! (More fun recipes to practise your weighing skills).

Ready, steady, cook

We had great fun practising our weighing skills when we made sweets at school. Here are a few more recipes to make you want to get the scales out at home!


Reading scales is really important in Maths. Especially as not every set of scales can be read in the same way (some go up in 20g and others in 10g, 25g or 50g). If possible, use non-digital scales to weigh out your ingredients. If you have more than one set of scales at home, use a different one for each recipe. Remember to work out what each line on the scales mean before pouring in your ingredients!


All recipes are nut free and can be made dairy free (alternative ingredients are listed alongside anything where dairy would be used). Instructions to melt butter/chocolate are for the microwave but if you do not have one/would prefer to melt using the stove-top bain-marie method then fell free to adapt this section of the recipe.

American-style fluffy banana pancakes

Thick and fluffy stacked pancakes made with banana, topped with sliced banana and a sauce of your choice. A great way to start the morning with your family! 

Holiday Pizzas

Homemade dough and sweet tomato sauce finished off with your favourite toppings. Make one big family favourite pizza, or individual mini-ones with personalised toppings.  

Bunny Paw Biscuits

It's almost Easter, and what better way to celebrate than with these cute biscuits. Of course if rabbits aren't your thing - why not make dinosaur feet, cats paw or puppy paw biscuits instead!
