I like to bake – scrolls and biscuits are my favourites. This is a recipe for simple currant biscuits.
200 grams butter
4 tablespoons sugar
270 grams plain flour
100 grams currants
Kenwood mixer, grease-proof paper, fork, scales
Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Throw in the currants and mix them through. Add the flour and mix it until it comes together as a dough.
I’m fairly picky when it comes to biscuit sizes, and I tend to weigh the mixture, then calculate the weight required for each biscuit to make it even. Then I weigh each biscuit. If I had to make them day in and day out I’d probably come up with a better way, but this works when it’s just 50-100 biscuits.
Once you’ve lined them all up neatly on a baking sheet, squish them with a fork, and place them in the oven. Bake for 10-20 minutes (it depends on your oven).
