These delicious jammy biscuits could not be easier to make if you tried, something excellent to bake with the kids on those rainy summer days.

The subject on the GBBO this week is biscuits, so we thought we give you a simply recipe so you can bake along later tonight. These jammy biscuits are classic, and let’s be honest, who can resist a jammy biscuit, we certainly can’t!



  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp strawberry jam


Step 1- Preheat your oven to 190C/gas mark 5/160 fan.

Step 2- Mix the butter, sugar and flour together in a mixing bowl until it starts to take the consistency of breadcrumbs. Or you can do this in a food processor if you want to take the easy option.

Step 3- Once you have mixed the butter, sugar and flour together, beat the egg and add as much of it as is needed to turn the mixture in to a stiff dough.

Step 4-Then shape the dough mixture in to a tubular shape ensuring it has a diameter of about 5cm. Once this is done, cut the rolled dough in to 2cm disc shapes.

Step 5- Spread the discs out on a baking tray or baking sheet, ensuring there is enough room left between each one, as the mixture will need the room when it is baking.

Step 6-Make a small mark in the middle of each disc and place 1 tbsp of the strawberry jam in the centre .

Step 7-Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the biscuits start to rise and they turn a delicious golden brown colour. Place on a wire rack to cool.

Step 8-Once cooled, you can tuck in and enjoy these scrumptious biscuits!
