- 225g self-raising flour
- 1/2 level tsp mixed spice
- Pinch of salt
- 115g chilled butter, cubed
- 75g caster sugar
- 75g sultanas (or currants)
- 1 medium egg
- 2 tbsp milk
Sift the flour, mixed spice and salt into a large bowl. Rub the cubed butter into the flour mixture until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and fruit. Lightly beat the egg then mix it and the milk into the flour mixture to make a soft but not sticky dough.
On a floured surface, roll out the dough to 5-6mm thick, then cut into 6cm rounds. Repeat until all the dough has been used.
Use a little butter to lightly grease a cast-iron bakestone or a heavy-bottomed frying pan. Warm on a low heat. Cook the rounds in batches for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. You may need to re-grease the pan between batches. Finish with a sprinkling of caster sugar (optional). Serve warm or cold.
