Recipe to make Oatmeal raisin cookies:
100 g raisins
150 ml vegetable oil
200g golden caster sugar or brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
140 g plain flour
¼ tsp baking soda or baking powder
300 g oats (Haferflocken)
Heat oven to 180C fan and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
Pour 50 ml boiling water over the raisins and leave to soak for 20 mins until plump.
Drain, reserving the liquid.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix together the oil and sugar.
Gradually beat in the egg, along with the reserved water from the raisins, the cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt into the bowl, then add the oats. Finally, mix in the raisins.
Drop heaped tbsps of the cookie dough onto the baking trays, well spaced apart as they will spread when cooking.
Bake for 12-15 mins until golden.
Leave to cool on the trays for 10 mins before tucking in, or transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
