Reader Janet writes:
Every Saturday we would bake up for Sunday and the week, we weren’t allowed bake on a Sunday, I have been making these since I was a wee wan and never really measure anymore, but Mother says these are right…
Ilb of self raising flour,
4oz marg or butter ( depends who’s coming for tea)
1 well beaten egg
Either milk or butter milk if you have it (roughly half pint)
Rub butter into flour until like fine breadcrumbs, add sugar, add beaten egg with milk (add milk slowly don’t drown the miller!) Shape gently into a ball and flatten slightly on a floured work top, cut out rounds, you can use a cleaned and floured jam jar of you don’t have fancy cutters
Chuck in sultanas or cherries if you want to,
Hot oven for ten minutes,
Clotted cream and Mum’s homemade jam/jelly ;)
