I know the title for this particular recipe sounds like two things that should never be mixed, but I couldn’t think of what else to call these. They are burger buns but I have used cupcake tins to bake them. They are perfect for the mini burgers I make for the family.
I have made my own burger buns for a while but they are often various shapes and sizes which is handy when my burgers are also of different shapes and sizes, but I really felt it was time for some consistency. This also neatly avoids the arguments over who has the largest!!
The basic recipe for the bread is as follows:
I pretty much always have the ingredients handy, and as far as I can tell this recipe is the easiest one I have come across for a really good, chewy cookie. I am playing around with the recipe, as I think there is probably scope for an excellent oatmeal and raisin cookie (probably my favourite cookie to eat, but have been sadly disappointed with recipes over the years, so going to have a go at making my own!! Fingers crossed)
Right first things first, this recipe comes from “The Great British Book of Baking” which accompanied the TV series The Great British Bake Off. Lovely book, very nostalgic.
Ok, first things first, here are the ingredients:
You will also need 3 baking trays greased with butter. However I never have more than 2 available so always have to cook this recipe in 2 batches. Worry not, they only take minutes to cook, so you won’t be hanging around the kitchen that long even if you only have one tray handy.
My variation on these, or added extra I suppose is dark chocolate. In a bowl in the microwave, gently melt around 50 – 100g dark chocolate. This very much depends on how much chocolate you want on your cookies. I usually melt around 75g and then using a piping bag, drizzle dark chocolate on to your cooled cookies. You do not have to do this as they taste properly gorgeous without chocolate, but sometimes you have those days when only chocolate will do!
Anyway, do have a go at these as they are so satisfying to bake.
