Who wants to be a Millionaire?
I've always loved Millionaires’ Shortbread as a special treat but didn't have a good recipe until Sheila in Derby gave me her family one. The name refers to the richness of the ingredients and the recipe is said to originate in Australia. Sheila’s family come from Scotland and they also call it Toffee Cake. It has 3 easy steps.
Sheila’s Millionaires’ Shortbread
Preheat the oven to 160C/Mark 3. Line a 11 x 8 inch/28 x 20 cms) Swiss roll tin with baking paper.
2oz/50g caster sugar
6oz/175g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the flour and baking powder. Knead the mixture until it forms a dough then press into the lined tin. Bake in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool.
