  • 450g / 1lb Odlums Self Raising Flour
  • 1 level teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 dessertspoons Sugar
  • 50g/2oz Margarine or Butter
  • 125g/4oz Sultanas or Raisins
  • 1 Egg (beaten)
  • 300ml / 1/4pt Milk


    1. Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with flour.
    2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix well.
    3. Rub the margarine or butter into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the sultanas or raisins and mix through.
    4. Finally, add the egg and sufficient milk to make a soft dough, not too wet or sticky! Turn onto a lightly floured board and gently knead, just enough to bring the dough together.
    5. Transfer to the prepared baking tray and shape into a round 1 1/2” deep. Cut a cross on top and bake for about 40 minutes until golden brown.
