I made these a week or so ago, not as nice as the ones my Welsh friend makes me "but still yummy"...

  • Ingredients:
  • 1lb self-raising flour.
  • 8oz buttor or good quality margarine
  • 8oz granulated sugar, and a small amount of caster sugar to serve
  • 8oz currants
  • Teaspoon of mixed spice
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs and a drop of milk
Rub the fat and flour together until crumbly and then add all the other ingredients except the eggs and milk. Mix thoroughly, and then add the eggs. Add the milk slowly while mixing, to get the right consistency. The mix should not be too sticky as it is difficult to roll.

Roll out - not too thin, a bit less than a quarter of an inch - and cut into rounds about 2" across. Cook on a griddle or hot plate and turn once when brown. Dust with a little caster sugar to serve.
