Some people think I’m crazy when I say that I find baking very relaxing! So after a rather long and tiring day I did a spot of relaxing baking with my daughter..
This isn’t what we were originally going to bake but I went to get the eggs out of the fridge and they’d all gone! So this was an alternative recipe that fortunately doesn’t need an egg!
First off the margarine is rubbed into the flour and salt, I use stork for all my baking..
Next the sugar is stirred in and then finally the milk. I added the 3 tbsps first and then maybe only another teaspoon before I felt it was a stiff enough dough..
Next it’s rolled out into a long sausage shape..
Then cut into rounds..
They did need a bit of reshaping into circles before putting onto the baking tray..
Next we made a hollow in each one and then filled with jam..
Next we brushed them with milk and then they were sprinkled/drenched in sugar..
After 15 minutes they were cooked and have spread out quite a bit..
After our tea we had to do a good bit of taste testing and they are good, although I wouldn’t describe these as a bun, more like a biscuit! I asked my daughter if these are better than jammie dodgers and after she’d tried three she decided they were!
Would I make these again? Yes..
