How to make Maori Bread/Takakau

How to make Maori Bread/ Takakau

WALT: Follow the structure of a  procedural text

Takakau is a traditional maori bread. It was first made in the 1800’s when the Maori traded with the British. They got some ingredients and made Takakau. Bread was originally made by the British but the Maori changed it up a bit. It was mostly made with flour and water but to this day people may use baking powder and milk to make it more fluffy. The Maori usually ate it with “Boil Up” or hangi, or you can eat it with butter and syrup.

1 Cup of Milk  
2 Cups of Flour
½ a teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Large bowl
1 Fork and sieve

6. It is now ready to be cooked
7. Heat oven up to 200 Degrees celsius and cook it for thirty minutes
8. It will be ready when golden brown
9. You can eat this with  syrup, butter, or boil up


  1. Hi Davarni,

    You have met the learning intention by following the structure of a procedural text! Next time you could add more detail to your sentences. For example, we poured the milk in to the centre of the mixture and only added a little at a time.
