Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


We got this recipe from the 'Delicious' magazine. You need:

  1. -150 gr of wholemeal flour
  1. - 50 gr of oat meal
  1. - 100  butter (cold)
  1. - 2 tsp of baking powder
  1. - 3 tbsp of sugar
  1. - half a tsp of salt
  1. - 5 tbsp milk (the original recipe calls for 3 but that was too little)

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients and then rub the butter in. Let it rest for 15 minutes in the fridge. Roll it out (the mixture is very dry so it is easier for the children to roll it out between two pieces of cling film - and it makes much less mess) Cut it in rounds or squares and bake for 12 minutes. They keep for a week.
