Honey Biscuits


Honey Biscuits are an old-fashioned type of biscuit. They are a bit sticky and cakey, but the taste will probably remind you of something your grandmother made.

I bought a jar of honey a while ago that I didn’t like the flavour of, so this was a good recipe to use up some of the unwanted honey. Did you know that every bee only makes 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey over its lifetime?

125gm butter

1 Cup brown sugar

1/4 Cup honey

2 eggs

1 1/2 Cups plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

Melt the butter, honey and sugar together in a saucepan, then set aside to cool.

Once cooled, pour the honey mixture into a bowl, whisk in the eggs, then fold in the flour and baking powder.

Drop teaspoons of mixture onto trays (use baking paper), then bake for ten minutes at 170 degrees Celsius until they become golden. Let the biscuits cool on the tray so they become crisp.
