Our Mt Evelyn campus was smelling delightful last week. Our VCAL students were busy making yummy homemade sausage rolls and chocolate chip muffins, and they were simply delicious so we thought we would give you the recipe for one of the dishes for you to try yourself. Make sure to let us know how you went as we love feedback at UYCH and share the recipe with your family and friends.
