W.A.L.T: write succinct instructions in my procedure writing

Takakau, formerly known as Maori bread, is a traditional Maori bread. This bread does not use any sugar, or any rising agents.

Prep time: 5-8 minutes
Cook time: 30/35 minutes to bake

Ingredients needed

  • 5 cups of flour
  • 600ml of milk
  • 5 teaspoons of baking powder

Cooking resources needed

  • Large bowl
  • Measuring cup
  • Butter knife/fork
  • Hands!


Before prepping, preheat the oven to 200° (degrees).

Add in 5 cups of flour and 5 teaspoons of baking powder into a large bowl.

Pour in  600ml of milk into the centre of the bowl, stir the mixture well until it’s dough texture.

Roll the dough out on a bench spread with flour, knead the dough gently until the right consistency(Non sticky and compact).

Roll the dough onto a tray into a round shape, preferably 1 centimetre thick.

Bake for at least 25-30 minutes until it’s golden brown.
