  • Term: 4
  • Class: 8Tas1
  • Teacher: Mrs Gibbins
Team challenge!

Anaylsing the brief - Bay members must work as a team to produce a food recipe from the ingrediants provided in a mystery box. You can use at little or much of the provided ingrediants and bring additional ingrediants to aid your cooking. Be creative with your design ideas but practical as 1 hour is your time limit to present a completed recipe. For example; choose snack foods that are quick to make but still creative and delicous.

Provided Ingrediants - Butter, Milk, Sugar, Salt & Flour.

Group ideas: mystery box challenge.

Possible ideas: Team brainstorm

  1. Buttercake
  2. Cheesy mite scrolls
  3. Cheese and bacon scrolls
  4. Burgers
  5. Pigs in a blanket
  6. Cake
  7. Cupcakes
  8. Pizza
  9. Dessert pizza
  10. Cookies
Idea 1: (Vegemite scrolls) Practical, time efficent, simple method of cooking, utilises provided ingredients, creative, snack food, easy to present nicely, delicous & overall a great option for the mystery box challenge.
Idea 2: (Cheese and bacon scrolls) Practical, time efficient, simple method of cooking, utilises provided ingredients, creative, snack food, easy to present nicely, delicious & overall a great option for the mystery box challenge.
Idea 3: (Cake) Basic recipe, quick to make, common dessert, easily iced well to present, utilises provided ingredients, a favourite food for many & a fairly good option for the mystery box challenge.
Idea 4: (Dessert Pizza) Not time efficient but very creative, presentable in many ways, delicious, uses ingredients in base yet requires an extent of additional ingredients... so maybe a preferred option to cook at home with better time availability.

For our mystery box challenge we have decided as a group to combine ideas 1 (Vegemite scrolls) and idea 2 (cheese and bacon scrolls) by making enough dough for both and differinriating by the flavours, giving variety.

  • Name of recipe: Scrolls (cheese & bacon/cheesymite)
  • Ingredients: Olive spray, 2 rashes of bacon, 2 cups self rating flour, 1 tablespoon salt, 50 grams butter, 3/4 cup milk, 1/3 cup tomato chutney, 3/4 cup cheese, jar of vegemite. (quantities can change depending on taste preferences)
  • Equipment: Baking trays, frying pan, bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, sifter, spatular, spoon, knife, rolling pin, plate.


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees then spray 2 baking trays with oil.
  • Sift flour and add salt in a bowl, Rub butter in using finger tips. Add milk, continue to mix into a soft dough. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth.
  • Roll out dough into a rectangular shape. Spread additional ingredients/ toppings on top. Roll into a long cylinder and cut into even slices.
  • Place slices onto baking tray and flatten, keep each piece separated on tray.
  • Bake for 15 or until golden.
What we cooked for our practical lesson, Mystery Box team challenge!

Workflow - Start to end of cooking period (chronological order)

  • Get all equipment out (boys) / Get all ingredients measured out (girls)
  • Cook bacon on frying pan (boys) / Make dough (girls)
  • Put bacon in the bowl to the side and portion out the ingredients that will be placed on the dough (boys) / Roll out dough into triangular shape and then make second batch (girls)
  • Begin to clean and wash up (boys) / Place ingredients on dough, roll up and cute into slices (girls)
  • Push down scrolls onto baking tray and put in oven (boys) / Complete second batch of scrolls and place in oven (girls)
  • clean up and get plate out and stuff for presenting (all)
  • Get goods out of the oven and all put in ideas for presentation (all)

Teacher was provided with photo of the final product... 2 scrolls were placed on a clean plate, one cheesy mite and the other cheese and bacon with garnish on top.

Good - Our group worked well during this task as we came up with a creative and practical idea that suited the challenge we were given. Each group member remembered the additional ingredients they were asked to bring in and the required equipment for a prac lesson. Safety was considered when using the bay equipment and our final product was completed on time due to organisation skills. Time management wasn't an issue, each member of the group had tasks to complete and contributed to complete the challenge.

Bad- Leading unto the mystery box challenge we had lessons when some members of the group were absent. This made it difficult to decide on an idea as a team but we used technology to communicate and get through it.

Skills- From this challenge we gained numerous skills that gaged around organisation, brainstorming, teamwork & cooking the food itself. We rolled out dough, measured ingredients, cooked with a pan, baked with the oven, worked on sanitation necessities when cleaning and overall did an excellent job co-operating.

Next- If we were given this task again there would be few elements i would change other then the fact of deciding on an idea sooner. Just to enable us time to focus on assessments with other subjects and have it done and dusted.

Thank you.
