Jet Club kids share with us the recipes they’ll be making for their dads on Father’s Day

I love my daddy very much because he cares about me. He loves choc chip biscuits. – Hope Dontsa, 7


  • 1 cup castor sugar 
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted 
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence 
  • 2 cups cake flour, sifted 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • Pinch salt 
  • 1 egg, beaten 
  • 1 small bag chocolate chips or a 200g bar of chocolate, chopped

1. Mix the castor sugar and melted butter together in a bowl with a wooden spoon. 
2. Add vanilla essence and mix. 
3. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and add to the sugar and butter mixture. 
4. Add the chocolate and knead the mixture until it forms a dough. 
5. Add the egg and knead again until it’s well mixed in. 
6. Using your hands, form the dough into small balls, place on a greased baking sheet and press down lightly with a fork to flatten a little. Make sure to leave at least 3cm between them as they will spread out while baking. 
7. Place in a pre-heated oven at 160˚C and bake for 10 to 20 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

I love my dad so much! He always loves me and supports me and helps me, all the time. He loves French toast so I make it for him as a treat. ­– Teagan Long, 10
