• 500 g strong white flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 20 g baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 75 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 tsp brown cane sugar
  • 100 g sultanas
  • 200 ml buttermilk
  • 150 ml milk


  • STEP 1
    Put the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into food mixer and, using a K-beater and medium speed, work in the butter. Add the sultanas and liquids and mix well.
  • STEP 2
    Line a baking tray.
  • STEP 3
    Combine the mixture with your hands to make a dough and shape into a ball. Flatten the ball out and cut a cross in the top, using a wet knife.
  • STEP 4
    Put the dough on the baking tray and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
  • STEP 5
    Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/mark 6.
  • STEP 6
    Once the dough is rested, dust it lightly with flour and bake in the middle of the oven for 40 - 50 minutes. If the top starts to brown too much, cover loosely with baking paper.
  • STEP 7
    Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
