Saskatoon Berry and Honey Sticky Biscuits
1 cup saskatoon berries or blueberries
1/4 cup honey (plus extra, if you like)
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. honey
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup sunflower oil
To make the filling, simmer the saskatoon berries and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until the berries burst. Set aside to cool slightly.
Put the butter, brown sugar and honey into an 8”x8” pan that has been greased, put it in the oven and turn it on to 350°F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and sunflower oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough. Do not overmix!
On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a 9” x 14” rectangle.
Spread with the cooled saskatoon berry mixture. If you like, drizzle with a little extra honey.
Starting from a long side, roll tightly jelly-roll style into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using dental floss or a serrated knife, and place cut side down in the pan.
Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Invert onto a platter while still warm.
