A basic, but yummy treat that the whole family will enjoy.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (170°C fan, 375°F, gas mark 5). Grease a baking tray.

  2. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

    • 225g Plain White Flour (We use Allinson)
    • Pinch Salt
    • 2 tsp Baking Powder
    • 75g Butter (Unsalted)
  3. Stir in the sugar, fruit and spices. Beat in the egg and just enough milk to make a stiff mixture.

    • 75g Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar (We use Billington's)
    • 75g Currants
    • ½ tsp Nutmeg (grated)
    • 0.25g Mixed spice (ground)
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) (beaten)
    • 2½ tbsp Milk (whole)
  4. Drop tablespoons of the mixture on the baking tray and rough up each with a fork.

  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Cool on a wire rack.

    These were so easy to make. I had help from my 10 year old granddaughter and she did all the mixing herself.
    They did take the 20 mins in the oven to bake and the taste was lovely. This will go into my baking book.
