    Hobnob Recipe

    Ingredients

    8oz sr flour
    8oz sugar
    8oz porridge oats
    8oz margarine
    1tbsp golden syrup
    1tbsp hot water
    1/2 tsp bic soda

    Instructions

    Mix the flour, oats and sugar, melt marg, syrup and water in a pan. Stir in bic soda and add to dry mix.

    Then mix well and make into smallish balls which you then put on a greased tray and flatten slightly with a fork. Put in the oven at 180 degrees C for 15 mins... and cool on the tray. The aim is to get them golden in the oven not brown.

    Thank you so much NI_BOBS, and also thankyou Aprilsun for the recipe in the first place 😊.
    Ah yh I know wraithlady but there's 231 pages and on my phone I am only able to go back one page at a time and it won't let me just go to the start for some reason so that would of taken forever, there probably is a way I'm just not getting it lol

    hayleyjanemat - on my laptop it tells me there are 231 pages, but on the bar under the last post which shows the page numbers (and lets you skip back) it shows a link to page 1 - and then a square with dots, and then page numbers from 225 onwards.   If I click on the box that says '1' it takes me back to the start of the thread.

    I've been an MSEr for 15 years, and this morning I finally made my first batch of Twinks.  They are supposed to be for Fathers day, but they are disappearing very quickly in the name of quality control :lol:
