It’s pouring down and miserable here which means it’s a perfect day for baking something calorific. After reading Breathe, a few people have asked what the hell an Aztec biscuit is having failed to find them via google. According to my mum, they’re a recipe she copied years ago from a daytime TV show and our family have been baking and scoffing them ever since. They are not things of beauty but oh my, they are delicious.
Beat 2 oz sugar with 6 oz butter until fluffy. Melt 4 oz milk chocolate and 3 oz dark in a glass bowl over a pan of hot water, and add to the sugar and butter. Stir in 6 oz plain flour and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. Add 3 oz lightly crushed (not obliterated!) cornflakes. Put blobs onto a greased tray and bake at 180c (356f) for ten minutes or so.
Et voila. Jem’s favourite biccies
