White Chocolate and Lavender Biscuits

I can't help reflecting on Mugg & Bean's super-sized muffins. A large berry-and-white-chocolate muffin is the perfect example. The muffin's outer, almost gooey, crispness contrasts so well with the light, inner texture. It's a tea-time taste sensation. Another option is an oversized chocolate-chip-and-lavender biscuit or cookie. A favourite of mine!

Yields: 53 nice sized biscuits


125 g melted salted Butter

½ t Vanilla essence

250 g light Brown Sugar

1 whole egg-lightly whisked

230 g Cake Flour

½ t Baking Powder

1 t Bicarbonate of Soda

½ cup Sultanas

1 cup chopped white chocolate

Chopped fresh Lavender  to taste


1) Mix the butter, vanilla and sugar together. Add the egg and whisk

2) Sift the flour, baking powder and bicarb together-add to the above

3) Finish with sultanas and chocolate pieces

4) Bake at 180°C for 10-15 minutes.
