Mad or superwoman

I just can't decide what I was the other morning. But by the time the kids left for school I had made a batch of Louise Cake and a batch of Hokey Pokey biscuits!!

I had a comment on my blog recently from a lady whose blog title is "Supermum no cape", What a great title.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been a bit stressed and not keeping up with some stuff - one of which was baking for lunches. So I either don't do it or go over the top at the moment!!!

Anyway - why has no one told me about Hokey Pokey biscuits before? They are so amazingly super easy and super fast to make. This is a fantastic recipe for the busy household.

From the Edmonds cook book

Hokey Pokey biscuits (taste a little like the inside of crunchy bars)
125g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon golden syrup
1 Tablespoon milk
Put all these into a pot. Heat until butter is melted and mixture nearly boiling, stirring constantly. Take off the heat and sift into pot
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda.
Stir well. Put teaspoon sized dollops onto a lined tray. Flatten slightly depending on how thin or thick you like your biscuits (I did not flatten much). Bake 180o C for 15 - 20 mins or until golden brown. (I cooked 18 mins)

  2. Hi Karen, a great recipe. I've been hearing things about this Edmonds Cookbook all my life and been meaning to buy a copy. One of these days. In the meantime, you keep posting the recipes. I've featured this one at tomorrow's Thriving on Thursday. Thanks for linking up.
