Most of my days start with a cup of tea and digestive biscuits. I like digestive biscuits because of its wheat taste.

When I was checking for an another baking recipe, I stumbled upon digestive biscuit recipe and it was easy; most importantly I had all the ingredients at home to try them immediately.

After baking them I got busy in my day to day chores and somehow missed tasting them, biscuits were on the dining table.

Charles returned from the office, as soon as he entered the house he tasted the biscuits and asked me ” hey Digestive biscuits ” and that’s when I realized the recipe is good because without me telling him what’s the dish, he figured it out just by taste. Of course, the look varies as its home made.

Just a tip for all the new baking beginners, I recommend a weighing a scale, because we need to follow the recipe to the T, its doesn’t cost too much,  digital weighing machine costs less than 500 Rs.

So, go ahead and try this recipe at your home, I am sure it will be a hit. If you have any queries please ask me in the comment section will be happy to answer.
