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


Butter and sugar

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.

Adding the currants

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.

Flour to make doughOnce 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).
