How to make Takakau
We are learning to follow the structure of a procedural text.

What is Takakau? well it is a traditional Maori bread that your ancestors might have made. Back then it was nice because they had flour to make the bread cause the Europeans gave them flour when they came to New Zealand.

Make a list of how much you need to put in each because if it had some flour you might put in a lot or a little and it my blow up your kitchen! Now we are going talk about the ingredients here are the ingredients.

  • 1 teaspoon of salt (to your taste)
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoon of baking powder (optional)
  • 100 ml milk or water


First  sift one teaspoon of salt, 2 cups of flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder in a large bowl.
Next slowly pour in 100ml of milk or water in the middle of the bowl.
After that start mixing and mixing until it gets more solid and softer.
Then flatten the bread on to the tray and sprinkle a little bit of flour on the bread so it won’t get sticky
Finally put it in the oven and leave for half an hour at 200 degrees Celsius.

  1. Hi AJ,

    You have met the learning intention by following the structure of a procedural text! I like your warning to your audience about checking the ingredients list carefully. This is funny as one group used too much baking powder and their bread rose so much in the oven it burned at the top!
