How to make Takakau

How to make Takakau/Maori Bread

WALT: Follow the structure of a Procedural Writing

Takakau is a traditional maori bread that was first made in the 1800’s. When the Europeans arrived they started to trade flour, weapons and  more stuff. The Maori mixed flour and water together and made Takakau. Now a days people put baking powder and milk to make it more tasty and fluffy.

  • 2 cups of Flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • ½ tsp of baking powder
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • Bowl
  • Fork/Sift
  • Flat Pan


  1. First, sift the flour, baking powder and salt together in a big bowl
  1. Then mix it all together
  1. When well combined add in milk and keep on stirring
  2. The mixture should start to form into dough so it’s ready to be kneaded
  1. Place a flat pan on the table and sprinkle flour onto the surface so that the dough will get less stickier
  1. Next knead the dough and flatten it
  2. After doing this you want to preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius
  3. Now it is ready to be cooked
  4. Finally,  put it into the oven and cook until golden brown


  1. Kia ora Telesia,
    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.

  2. Hi Miss Stone,

    Thank You! I very much enjoyed writing this and I will for sure add more detail next I write another procedural writing. Thank You for commenting! :))

    Kind Regards,
