Year 5 Cooking as Anglo Saxons

As part of our Anglo-Saxon topic, Year 5 have made honey, oat and spice cakes. 

The children learnt that as sugar hadn’t been discovered yet, the Anglo-Saxons sweeten their puddings using dried fruits and honey. They would have been cooked in a heavy iron saucepan with a lid over a fire however in Year 5 we used an oven!

The children at school, and those that made them at home, really enjoyed making these oat cakes and everyone seemed to enjoy the finished product. However, we did think they needed a bit more honey to help stick the oats together as they were very crumbly.
