Some tips for this recipe..
- The Butter
I have tried this recipe so many times with only mediocre success and that was down to how I prepared the butter. I seem to have found the perfect balance now, which is heating the butter just enough until it’s slightly melting, but has still got a firmness. Here’s an example…
- The Order
I experimented a few times with mixing the ingredients in different ways, and you’d be surprised how much difference this makes. Once I added the syrup in first and it resulted in breadcrumbs that I couldn’t get to mix properly! To ensure best results I do recommend adding the ingredients in as I have specified.
I have only ever tried this with two substitutions – one time with dairy butter and once using baking powder instead of bicarb of soda. Both worked a treat – but you will need about 3 times as much baking powder if you decide to use this instead.
- Baking Time
I have found that baking these for 8 minutes makes them the perfect consistency; a slight crunch on the outside but chewy in the middle. If you wish for firmer biscuits then just bake them a little longer. One mistake I did make was thinking they were raw because they were still so soft – this is totally normal when they come out of the oven, and will firm as they cool.
Here’s the recipe!
