Chocolate digestives

Makes 8

It’s easier than you might think to make this British classic

You will need

✽ 100g wholemeal plain flour
✽ 60g oatmeal
✽ ¼tsp bicarbonate of soda
✽ 75g butter, cubed
✽ 30g light soft brown sugar
✽ 1-2tbsp milk
✽ 200g Belgian milk chocolate, broken into squares
✽ 2tsp vegetable oil
✽ 5cm round cutter

How to do it

1 Put the flour, oatmeal and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl. Rub in the butter, to form crumbs. Add the sugar and just enough milk so that the mixture sticks together. Wrap in clingfilm. Chill for 20 mins.

2 Roll out the dough on lightly floured baking parchment. Stamp out 10 rounds with the cutter. Spread out on parchment-lined baking sheets and chill for 15 mins.

3 Heat the oven to 160C/Gas 3. Bake the biscuits for 12 mins, until firm and beginning to brown. Cool on a wire rack.

4 Melt the milk chocolate with the oil in a heatproof bowl, resting over a pan of simmering water. Spoon the chocolate on top of the biscuits, to cover. Leave for a few minutes to allow the chocolate to firm up slightly, then draw several lines in the chocolate with a cocktail stick, and drag the cocktail stick through the lines to create a gentle feathered pattern.
