Wheat Free Jammy Dodgers Recipe
If you’ve seen some of my recent posts then you will know that I am now the official food blogger for the Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy Support Charity. CMPA Support are a wonderful charity; their aims are to raise awareness of the allergy at all levels, so that future generations of CMPA babies (& their families) shouldn’t have to suffer; and to provide information, support and practical advice to parents/carers at whichever stage of the CMPA journey they are on. You can find CMPA Support on Facebook and join one of their many Facebook support groups. I publish one food related blog post per week on behalf of CMPA Support and I am very excited to be a part of such an amazing charity.
I removed wheat from my diet in February this year (doctor’s orders) and since then, whenever my son is eating a Jammie dodgers biscuit, I can’t help but really crave for one. My son has cow’s milk protein allergy and is soya intolerant but he’s ok with wheat and gluten so he can eat the Burton’s Jammie Dodgers biscuits. They are a may contain milk but (touch wood) he’s always been ok with them. I decided to feed my craving this week and have a go at making some wheat free jammy dodgers biscuits, I used rice flour and made them dairy, soya, egg, gluten and nut free. They turned out delicious, so delicious I’ve already had to make a second batch!
140g rice flour – I used Doves Farm
25g desiccated coconut
50g icing sugar
100g dairy & soya free spread
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 tablespoons of jam
1. Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4. Put the dairy and soya free spread into a large mixing bowl and stir until it is smooth. Add the vanilla essence and stir it in.
2. Sift the icing sugar into the bowl then beat the mixture well until it is smooth.
3. Sift the rice flour and cornflour into the bowl, then add the coconut and stir well to make a soft dough.
4. Scoop a little of the dough with a teaspoon and roll it into a smooth ball, place onto a greased baking tray. Do this with the rest of the dough and leave space between each ball on the baking tray, as they will expand when in the oven.
5. Put your little finger into the middle of each ball, to make a dimple (space for the jam).
6. Bake the biscuits in the oven for 15 minutes then place on a wire rack to cool.
7. Once cooled, use a teaspoon to fill the holes with jam.
You can also shape these biscuits using a small round cookie cutter. Roll the dough out onto a flat surface and then use your little finger to make a dimple in the biscuit. You will need to roll the dough out quite thick to shape the biscuits using this method.
