Cake delight – 20 May 2014

Class 7 pupils at DGS had an experience to remember on the 20th of May when they baked a cake using a charcoal fire. This was necessary as the school doesn’t have any ovens. The process involved putting sand in a large cooking pot placed on a hot charcoal stove. The large pot will then have another pot with the cake dough inserted in it on top of the sand. The two pots will then be covered with a lid and charcoal placed on top of the big pots lid.
This was a new experience for the children as they were led by their English Teacher, Madam Beatrice with some help from the rest of the staff. The cake took 2 hours to bake and was well received by the pupils who worked hard to prepare it.
