To make 12 cakes using a 7.5cm (3inch) cutter you will need:
175g (6oz) Self- raising flour
85g (3oz) Butter cut into cubes
50g (2oz) Light brown soft sugar
50g (2oz) Currants
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 medium free range egg & 1 tablespoon milk – beaten together
Measure flour and butter into a bowl and rub together to form breadcrumbs or whizz in your food processor. Add sugar and spice. Mix together.
If necessary, remove mixture from the processor and put into a bowl. Add currants and combine. Make a well in centre. Add egg and milk to bring mixture together and form a dough.
Preheat your griddle on AGA simmering plate or conventional hob. Grease lightly with sunflower oil.
Roll dough out on a floured board to a thickness of 5mm (1/4 inch) and stamp into rounds. Cook in batches on griddle, turning often to ensure even cooking.
Enjoy warm with butter and a pot of tea.
