We couldn’t let National Biscuit Day go by without sharing at least one recipe!

And given that the weather is so glorious today, we’ve picked these sunny Seville Biscuits.

Give them a try, you won’t regret it!


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg. C., 350 deg. F., Gas Mark 4. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl then stir in the oats.
  3. Add the marmalade, butter, syrup or honey and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan and gently heat until the butter has melted and the sugar dissolved, making sure not to let it bubble. You may need to whisk a little to break up the marmalade properly.
  4. Pour the warm mixture over the dry ingredients in the bowl and stir thoroughly to combine.
  5. Place heaped tablespoons of mixture on to the parchment-lined sheets, leaving plenty of space in between for the biscuits to spread.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes until lightly golden, allow to cool for a minute on the tray, then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.
