My partner & I are a bit of an old married couple & every night after dinner he makes cups of tea which we drink with either a biscuit or a small piece of cake. The last couple of weekends I have made a batch of biscuits for the week. The first ones I made were chocolate cherry biscuits based on a recipe from I changed the recipe a little bit & they were nice, but tasted quite scone-like.

125g Nuttelex
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 'egg' (use No Egg replacer)
1 3/4 cup self raising flour
3/4 cup glace cherries (chopped in half)
50 gm sweet william chocolate chopped up
1/4 cup soy milk

1) Prepare the No Egg

2) Beat Nuttelex, sugars and egg until light and fluffy.

3) Stir in sifted flour, the cherries and then the choc bits.

4) Make into balls and place on lightly greased baking trays - leaving space in between. Flatten tops with a fork.

5) Bake for 15mins at 170 degrees.

The next week I made lime & white chocolate biscuits. I made these before at christmas & they were really good so I was looking forward to making them again & once again they were really delicious! The recipe is from "have cake, will travel" & can be found here. I copied the recipe exactly, except I used 50rams of chopped sweet william white chocolate instead of the choc chips - I think they would be really good with a bit of coconut added as well. I must try some more recipes from that blog because there are so many that look really good.


  1. There is nothing better than a cup of tea and a biscuit!

    Both of the types you made look great :)

  2. They look great. Yay for sweet william and glaced cherries :) i love the sound of the second lot too.
