Honey Jumbles

26 Jun

Time is of the essence for me at the moment. No mincing words or extra pics, and no time for icing on these honey jumbles. Lucky they taste bloody good just as they are.

Disclaimer: There is an hour’s wait involved in these. I know, I know. Do the first bit without telling your toddler.

1/2 cup honey
60g butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 tsps milk

Bring the honey, butter and brown sugar to the boil.

Then cool for an hour or so or until thick (sorry!).

Turn the oven on to 180 degrees.

Sift dry ingredients over cooled butter mix and stir to form a dough. Add the milk as needed then knead lightly. Either shape into rolls and trim neatly into little pillows, or dump dollops unceremoniously onto a tray (can you guess which method I adopt?). Bake for 12-15 mins.

    Thanks for reminding me about honey jumbles. Perhaps they’re just an Aussie thing?
