instant pudding biscuits:

170g butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 egg, 1 tsp b/p, 1 pkt instant pud, 1 & 1/2 cup flour, 3 tbsp cornflour.

cream butter & sugar, add egg then dry ingreds.
bake 180 - 190 c for 10-15mins.

original recipe I had from years ago was to use 1 cup of sugar, which you can do, but I found they were too sweet & works out exactly the same with half the amount. so up to you :)
any flavour instant pud, but butterscotch is super yum

these are so good for dunking hehe

sp0_0kie, Jan 28, 12:27am
does everything just get mixed together, no creaming etc?

thanks they sound yum

Do you have the recipe for peanut butter muffins - sounds interesting

vintagekitty, Jan 28, 2:43am
The best ever HUGE chocolate cake I got from here. Its so easy and failproof!

3.5 c flour
3.5 c sugar
3 t/s Baking powder
1.5 c cocoa
1 cup oil
2 cups milk
3 t/s baking soda
1 t/s salt
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups of boiling water (added at end)

Put all ingredients (except for the water) in a large bowl mix well to a batter. add boiling water and mix till smooth bake in the over at 160 for 1hr. you can split the mix and make two smaller cakes or make 1 smaller cake and put the rest into muffin tins the choice is completely up to you. this is an excellent cake if you have a large family or just want to impress people. gets moister by the day so stays nice and fresh very simular to mud cake.


I just ice it with standard choc icing

how much in grams is 1 cup of butter?

lx4000, Jan 29, 11:05pm


darlingmole, Jan 29, 11:11pm
sorry my computer's been out of action (again!) but yeah you just whack it altogether.If the melted butter is too hot/warm then it melts the choc chips and makes the biscuits more fudgey and all brownn whereas if the butter is more cool it keeps the biscuit white (if you get how I mean)
