Can anyone tell me what a sub for Digestive biscuit would be as I’ve never had the flavor but see it popping up in recipes?
This is what they taste like. So I’ll let you take it from there.
Digestive biscuits are very similar to graham crackers. They’re not quite as sweet, and the texture is different ( Digestives are thicker, less crisp), but they can be used in many of the same ways. Tapping the will recommend this comment to others.Aug 24, 2009
Funny, I’ve always wondered WTF is a ‘graham cracker’, and what they taste like.
Only quite recently I saw a description somewhere that stated they tasted like digestives, which I’ve eaten and there’s also Hobnobs - the much nicer version of the two - that have that golden syrup buiscit taste.
Hobnobs are pretty sweet though.
Zibelli cookie would fit the bill here . I find it’s closer to animal crackers . They say close only counts in horshoes and Hand grenades but I reckon this would be close enough to work
LOL and I’ve never had a Hobnob. Funny how things are different everywhere
That what a Graham Cracker is like?
They’re like Digestives but slightly richer and without the laxative reference that I generally find make Digestives not only unappetizing but about as tempting to pickup and buy as a box of ‘Laxettes’.
Not that I’ve bought Hobnobs for quite a while, but I’ve bought Digestives… oh right the same number of times I’ve purchased Laxettes - never.
I would like to try Graham Crackers though, just to get a mental index of what all the flavour concentrates are trying to imitate.
That bottle of Graham Cracker (TFA) I had sure tasted like biscuit though, so I’ll just have to assume it’s pretty close.
I think the best way to understand what a graham cracker is, if you’ve never had one, is to make them. They really are delicious. We also use this for our crust on cheesecakes You melt butter, and smoosh the graham crackers then press them into a pie plate.
They don’t look very delicious… they look like the dry, flavorless wheat crackers we eat with tomatoes and cheese.
Looks can be deceiving though.
We’ve got no biscuits like that actually: all ours are round if they’re sweet, and square if they’re dry crackers for savoury toppings - wait, except Jatz, they’re salty and round…
I would have no choice but to make them course, because they don’t sell these strange crackers in any shops or supermarkets here.
Good thinking @authormichellehughes, except that… What the heck is Graham flour???
10% Custard, 6% Vanilla Cream… no other funky shit added, maybe.
Should come out excellent once it’s steeped a million years
Looking at the recipe, I reckon they are possibly similar to Arnotts Granita biscuits. My mother and Aunt always used those for cheesecake base. They are actually quite a nice biscuit. Not overly sweet and have a coarser texture than most others and a darker, almost brown sugar type note.
You are dumping these recipes all over the place mate, what happened to your thread for this stuff?
Sharing is caring
It’s related to digestive biscuits anyway, because I almost added 1% biscuit, but changed my mind and didn’t
Should be able to buy some in the international aisle of the supermarket or online aussie foodie shop. We can get them online over here. Have read people here compare them more to the round wine or vanilla wine biscuits
When I first saw Graham Cracker I wondered exactly the same thing and actually googled them to see what they were.
I did buy a bottle of TFA and was glad I did but it doesn’t remind me of a digestive biscuit as such.
I get a taste of some sort of biscuit but I’m sure I taste the smallest amount of coconut too???
Probably just me but either way I like it.
They are actually very sweet, almost like a cookie
LOL maybe this would be easier https://amzn.to/3kYxQVm just buy some on Amazon
No such thing as graham flour. They are made with whole wheat flour.
There is on Amazon but it’s pricey as in holy crap pricey (Then again I buy Almond and Coconut Flour which is pricey too, the price of Keto LOL)
