Baking from the colonial days
By, Brock Hosier and Imani Colthrirst
What is Baking in the Colonial Days
Baking is when you mix an amount of ingredients to make something like a cake, bread, cookies, brownies, and cinnamon rolls. That is just some examples, but there are many other things you can make. The colonial bakers are not much different from are bakers today they both make yummy foods for town's people. Most colonial bakers were families that worked together. Some materials used by a baker were grain, sugar, flower, fruit, and wood.
Colonial Bakery
Why should you choose us to be bakers?
Why should you choose us to be bakers well that's the question? We should be bakers because we are hard working like the colonial bakers. We will promise you that in the history of bakers we will be the best bakers you ever assigned. We will make sure we get this project done and good. And we will tell you a secret.
We love cookies, muffins, cupcakes, brownies, pastries, bread, cake, and cinnamon rolls!
350 degrees

Menu for today/ are specialty today is the jumbo chocolate chip cookie.
this is what our temperature on are oven looks like today.
This is what a colonial oven looked like, but bigger.
What did They Make?
Colonial bakers made many things that we make today. For example muffins, pies, cakes, tea biscuits, and of coarse cookies. They made many other pastry's too.
cake is not only is eaten today but it was also eaten in colonial days, but in colonial days cake was not eaten as often as it is today. The reason for this is because cake was expensive. Other baking goods where expensive to. Also cake was not decorated and frosted as neatly as our cake today it was pretty plain in colonial days, but people still loved cake back then just like today.
Bread goes back a long time ago starting with the french. It is made out of wheat and dough. As you know most of us bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch and on top of that amazing peanut butter there's bread so we all know we still use bread. Bread is probably the most bought baking item in colonial times and also today. There are different kinds of bread such as wheat bread, sour dough bread, and whole grain bread. There are a lot more kinds of bread but those are just some examples.
Pastry's are just like cakes, but smaller they are different from cakes because they are filled with a jelly or fruit substance. Most pastries are filled with strawberry jelly, cherry jelly, and apple jelly.
Cupcakes are just a tiny cake but put into a wrapper. Just like cakes cupcakes where not as decorated and neatly frosted like are cupcakes today. Muffins are just like cupcakes, but not frosted. Muffins also have a different flavor than cupcakes. Muffins have fruits in them like blueberries in them. Muffins are also healthier than cupcakes.
Thank you for eating at my restaurant today. Have a good day. Thank you for your money.
Colonial Bakers
Don't forget to tip us.
We use flour a lot not only for baking but for cooking meals. In the colonial days they used flour for baking. Some examples are cakes, dough, muffins, cookies, brownies, pies, and many other things. Flour was hard to get because of money. Flour was the main item used in baking.
No drooling
No hallucinating
No thinking that we are food and try to eat us
No eating the smart board
Don't be rude!
Sit back and enjoy the show!
like most bakers today our bakers back then also used an oven like we do in are modern baking day. Except that the ovens they used in colonial times where very different than our ovens today. Like today we set a temperature for are heat, but back in colonial days there was no temperature on the oven they did not even know what the temperature was. There ovens looked very different to. But still all bakers use the invention of the oven.
Cookies were made in the colonial days by many bakers and enjoyed by many people there was hundreds of types of cookies made one of them being chocolate chip. Some of these cookies were baked and some were boiled. Cookies are still made and enjoyed today, but there was a lot less types in the colonial times. After this slide their will be a colonial recipe.

This is what we all been waiting for who is the costumer of the month?!
Eggs were used for making batter, quiches, dough, and you could just boil them and have a small snack. Eggs were found in near by farms or the bakers own farm. If a baker ran out of eggs he or she will not be able to bake. Bakers use eggs to make the dough in cakes lighter an more fluffy.
Grain was used to make bread, cakes, pies, and cookies. Grain can also be used for cereal and trail mix. Wheat can be found in a farm
Bakers in the colonial times used dough and batter to make certain things. Dough was used to make pizzas, bread, dumplings, bagels, and cookies. Batter was used to make cakes, muffins, pancakes, cornbread, and biscuits. Dough and batter are not the same thing. Dough is more hard and not as sweet as batter. Batter is sweeter then dough because of the added sugar. Batter is also different because batter is more of a liquid then dough.
