A slight fib, I actually used Cadbury’s chocolate spread but they’re pretty much the same thing. I got this fantastic recipe from a book I read a few years ago called ‘Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe’ by Jenny Colgan it’s a great inspiring and motivating book that I would recommend if you love baking and maybe like the idea of starting your own business one day.
225g self raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
100g caster sugar
½ tsp bicarbonate soda (dissolved in 1 tsp of hot water)
2 tbsp golden syrup
6 tsp nutella
1. Set the oven to gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Rub in the butter, sugar, bicarb and Nutella to form a dough.
3. Next roll into small balls and place on the tray, pressing down in the centre with your thumb.
4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, they will still be soft but take them out to cool down.
