Making scrummy Biscuits with the kids ....

Thursday was another cooking Day

So after one successful day of cooking we decided to do some of my favourite childhood biscuits that I used to make when I was a kid .... this recipe I got from Nickelodeon many years ago and still to this day I love making these scrummy biscuits......

These are all the ingredients you will need to make these biscuits


  • 60g of Butter or Margarine
  • 8 Tablespoons of Honey or Golden Sryup
  • 160g of Self-Raising Flour
  • 20g of Cornflakes
  • 40g of Desiccated Coconut
  • 40g of Rolled Oats
  • 70g of Sultanas (optional)


  • Grease the baking Tray.
  • Mix together the flour, cornflakes,desiccated coconut, rolled oats and sultanas if you used them.
  • With the help of a grown-up mix the butter (or margarine) and honey (or golden Syrup) in a pan over a low heat until they are completely mixed, then remove from heat. 
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the melted mixture and mix until in becomes a stiff dough.
  • Spoon the mixture on to the baking tray and roll into around 15 balls.
  • Get a grown-up to put it in the oven bake at 180C/350F/Gas mark 7 for 10-12 minutes.
I make more by doubling the mixture

after around 12 minutes the biscuits are all made and ready to eat be quick as I find these don't last too long in our house ... let me know if you make these yourself ...and tell me what you think....

Also a little tip I have learned when making these is when you are doing the golden syrup bit but you tablespoon into a mug of hot water and you will find the Syrup will come over very easy without sticking to the spoon ...
