Homemade malted milk biscuits


  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp of good quality vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp of golden syrup
  • 1 medium free range egg
  • 350 of plain (all purpose) flour
  • 50g malted milk powder, such as Ovaltine or Horlicks
  • 1/2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/Fan 160C/Gas 4. Then line two large baking trays with grease proof paper - set aside. Then in a large bowl beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Next add the syrup and the egg to the mixture, and beat. Then add the flour, malted milk powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix thoroughly - it should all come together as one large ball. It is also worth noting that Ovaltine makes darker biscuits, whilst Horlicks makes lighter ones!
  3. Divide the dough into four equal parts (you can use a weighing scale to help, or just go by feel). Put one piece between two sheets of grease proof paper and using a rolling pin, roll the dough until you have the thickness of a pound coin.
  4. Remove the paper and cut into biscuit shape size rectangles.Use the edge of a sharp knife to flute the edges. Place in the baking tray, and repeat with the remaining dough, Bake for around 10-12 minutes then cool.
