Master Chef

I stared at the camera looming before me. What was I supposed to say?

Sophie stopped filming. " Why didn't you say anything?" she asked.

"I didn't know what to say," I admitted.

"Say, 'Hi, I am Gemma-Rose Elvis and I am going to teach you how to make my favourite kind of biscuits, oaties," Sophie said.

"Oh, okay," I said, wondering how Sophie had ever talked me into this.

I wondered what my problem was. I mean it was simple, just tell my fans how to make oaties and look cool while I do it. Instead, here I was staring at the camera like I didn't know how to make them myself.

"Hi," I said a little too loudly, "today I am going to teach you how to make oaties...."

I was on a roll. It was quite easy except I had to remember to tell people what I was doing.

With an expert slice, I cut some butter off the block and weighed it. It was the right amount, of course. I had cut it after all.

I whizzed and sliced, tasted, measured, and tasted again before taking the blade out of the food processor.

"Now we are going to put some baking paper on the tray," I said in a I-know-what-I-am-doing voice.

Finally I had a full tray of oaties. I sauntered over to the oven to cook them. A little while later I took them out of the oven and put them on the counter. My arm hit the kettle and the kettle turned on. I quickly turned the kettle off and hoped that Sophie could cut that bit out of the video.

Sophie and I edited the video and cut lots of it out before Mum uploaded it onto Youtube.

I enjoyed being Master Chef but I think that I will be content being "me" till Sophie persuades me to get into the kitchen again.

To make oaties you will need:

125 grams of butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla essence

2 teaspoons of stevia

1 egg

1 cup of flour

1 cup of oats

1 teaspoon of baking powder

50 grams of dessicated coconut

50 grams of chocolate

I hope you enjoy my video!
