Bake for a friend

While you are all digesting my last post and call for comments on the notion of hospitality I thought I would encourage you to plan a little baking this weekend. Gather some friends, some little people in your world or even a neighbour’s kid and make these delicious, simple biscuits. It is a recipe from my dear friend Jenny. You may already have a recipe just like it. The ingredients are not luxury items and the process is simple…..and that little bit of cinnamon makes the house smell so good. People will be knocking on your door asking to come in!

Quick Mix Biscuits

80g butter, melted, cooled
½ cup caster sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 egg
½ cup sultanas
½ cup plain flour
½ cup SR flour
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp bicarb
Preheat oven to 180C
Combine butter and sugars in a bowl.  Mix in eggs and sultanas.  Sift flours, cinnamon and bicarb over mixture.  Stir until just combined.  Set aside for 10-15 mins or until firm.
Place small spoonfuls of mixture onto baking sheets, allowing room for spreading.  Bake for 12-15 mins or until golden.

  1. I made this recipe again today without the cinnamon and sultanas, a little less sugar and 1/3 cup Milo – an Australian, chocolate malt drink. The kids love them. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks for this recipe. I've made these three times now – today is the first time I've had sultanas to put in. Without sultanas they taste very much like the Dutch spekelaas biscuits – yum!
