A Guernsey Biscuit isn’t a biscuit at all … it is savoury rather than sweet, and more like a bread roll than a biscuit


1lb wholemeal or plain white flour

4oz Guernsey butter

1oz yeast

½ oz of sugar

½ oz of salt

8 fl oz warm Guernsey milk


Mix the salt and sieved flour.

Cream the butter, yeast and sugar together.

Add the warm milk.

Leave for in a warm place for ten minutes.

Add the flour to the mixture and knead well.

Cover the bowl and leave to stand in a warm place for 1 hour 30 minutes to rise.

Knead again on a floured board and separate into balls.

Transfer the balls to a greased baking tin and leave to stand for another 20 minutes.

Bake in a preheated hot oven 200°C or Gas mark 6 for 20 minutes or until golden
