Hob Nob biscuits are actually a proprietary brand, but I have made a similar type of biscuit, just trying out a basic biscuit recipe with some rolled oats in it.
They have turned out rather well, with a lovely sweet aroma, as they cooked. They have a nice, brittle crunch to then, and have just a taste of golden syrup.
They are also very easy to make, so give it a try.
- 140 g Self-raising flour( I used plain flour and sifted it with two teaspoons of baking powder
- 110 g rolled oats
- 140 g of softened butter
- 140 g caster sugar
- 2 tsp golden syrup
- 1 tbsp milk
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- Preheat the oven to 150c/130c fan/Gas Mark 2
- Cream the butter with the sugar
- add bicarbonate of soda, golden treacle and milk, mix together
- add the flour and rolled oats and mix together
- when all is mixed together(you may want to use your hands to pull the mixture into a ball
- divide the mixture into about 20 pieces, and roll into a ball. (or roll the mixture into a sausage and cut into 20 pieces)
- place each ball onto a baking sheet, about 10 per sheet
- press down the ball to flatten a little
- place the trays into the oven and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown
- The biscuits will spread a little as they cook and the tops will start to crack slightly, giving a nice rustic look.
- Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a couple of minutes, on the baking trays, before transferring to a cooling rack.
