Recently, Millionaires Shortbread was seen not once, but twice in one episode of the Great Sport Relief Bake Off on BBC, baked by both Anita Rani (the eventual winner) and Angela Griffin. This is my take on the classic teatime … Continue reading

Jelly Tot Biscuits

I was rooting round my cupboard this morning, trying to decide what biscuits to make, when I came across some Jelly Tots that my son was given at Christmas. Yes, they were still in date!! Time to do something with them, I thought! I’m also lined up to do some more baking with the children at my sons preschool next week, and needed to come up with an egg-free and dairy-free recipe as there are now some children there with allergies. This is the result of my experimentation this morning!

This recipe makes approximately 35 biscuits, and would work equally well with Smarties (or a dairy free equivalent) instead of Jelly Tots. The biscuits themselves (minus the Jelly Tot bits) are reminiscent in taste and texture to Fox’s Crinkles or Golden CrunchBiscuits. Continue reading

Digestive Biscuits

103

This week, I was set a challenge by my lovely friend Anne, over at Three Biscuit Thursday, to bake an improved version of an everyday biscuit that you can buy in the shops. The first suggestion she came up with was Hobnobs, but I have already covered them in my Oatie Cookie post of a few months ago. The next suggestion was for Digestive Biscuits – a traditional biscuit which can be eaten on its own, or as a savoury biscuit with cheese or pate.

Because these are home baked, they don’t contain any of the preservatives that store bought ones would have, and we think they taste nicer. My son even tried to pinch an extra one from the wire cooling rack this afternoon as he liked them that much! Continue reading

Vanilla Shortbread

In time for Three Biscuit Thursday, I’ve been asked for a recipe for Shortbread.

This is a very easy and fairly quick shortbread recipe, and so much nicer than shop-bought shortbread, with flecks of vanilla seeds running through it. Continue reading

Anzac Biscuits

The 25th April is known worldwide as ANZAC Day, and is the day when the first military action taken in the First World War by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps is recognised and honoured. This biscuit recipe was one used by families to send home baked treats to their loved ones serving at the front, as it keeps well and does not spoil in transit, partly due to the lack of eggs in the recipe.

Thanks to Mat Folas (Winner of Masterchef 2009) and proprietor of The Wild Garlic in Dorset, for this recipe, which he posted on his blog, and is originally courtesy of NZ Womans Weekly. I am staying true to the recipe, and giving measurements as published, but as requested by one of the followers of my blog, I have now provided equivalent weights! Continue reading

Extra Gingery Ginger Nut Biscuits

These biscuits are incredibly easy to bake. I came up with the recipe when I was pregnant with Peter, and had to commute to work by car for several hours each day. These biscuits helped with my morning sickness in the car, but are equally fantastic with a mug of coffee or tea. The original recipe was by Delia Smith, but I found it lacking in the Ginger Department for me, and stepped it up a few notches! Continue reading

Chocolate Brownies

This is the best recipe I have come across for chocolate brownies, and because it has no eggs in it, you can bake it as squidgy as you want. Perfect for those with an allergy to eggs, pregnant ladies, small children or those who just want to eat really squidgy brownies without the fear of raw egg. This can also be baked with Doves Farm Gluten Free Flour to make it Gluten Free too! Continue reading
