Baking is one of the things I always say I will start doing once I have free time. The thing is even if I have some free time, it is never the right time for baking. Until something happens like the time when I found out that my flatmates have left me some baking products in one of the cupboards in the kitchen. Shortly after that, while searching for my camera in my suitcase, I happened to find my baking book. These two things helped me remember my idea from a long time ago to bake some biscuits. Having two different types of sugar and some flour left I decided to give it a try. Once I made chocolate chip cookies from the baking book. However, this time I decided to make cookies with sultanas instead of chocolate chip, and honey instead of caster sugar, just to experiment a bit with the recipe.
So, this is the recipe that I followed:
Ingredients for 30 serves
Butter for greasing
175g/6 oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
125g/4 ½ butter
85g/3 oz muscovado sugar
2 tsp honey
½ tsp vanilla extract
The recipe is adapted from the book Baking...made simple, Parragon books
Following the recipe you should mix all the ingredients in a bowl and then make cookies from the mixture. Then, grease the baking tray and put the mixture on the tray. Be careful not to put too many sultanas in one cookie, because they will fall out when you start baking them. You should bake the cookies in a preheated oven, 190°C/375° F, Gas Mark 5 for 10-12 minutes, or unitl they are golden brown. I left them for 12-14 minutes.
So if you have some free time this week and some ingredients left you can try making those sultana cookies. Let me know how they turned out in the comments section below!
