Baking again… YAY! honestly, I don’t think there’s anything that I enjoy more, except maybe dogs, but unfortunately i’m unable to have one of those at this moment, so I suppose baking will have to do.
But no matter, I made these for my mum’s work as they were having a charity event to raise money for alzheimer’s, and apparently, these went down a treat!
They’re crumbly, moist and just full of deliciousness!
- 100g raisins
- 150ml vegetable oil
- 200g golden caster sugar
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 140g plainfour
- ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 300g oats
- Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
- Pour 50ml boiling water over the raisins and leave to soak for 20 mins until plump. Drain, reserving the liquid.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the oil and sugar. Gradually beat in the egg, along with the reserved water from the raisins, the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
- Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into the bowl, then add the oats. Finally, mix in the raisins.
- Drop heaped tbsps of the cookie dough onto the baking trays, well spaced apart as they will spread when cooking.
- Bake for 12-15 mins until golden.
