Recipes: Singin' Hinnies
These simple tasty scones do require a griddle to cook them. Ordinary frying pans don't work...
8 oz plain flour
4 oz butter
1 tsp baking powder
7 fl oz milk
Pinch of salt
Handful of currants
Mix the flour, butter, salt and baking powder in a food processor for about 1 minute. The aim is not a thorough blend, but to leave small granules of butter in the mixture.
Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the milk and currants to form a stiff dough. Roll out into about six thin, flat scones.
Separate with greaseproof paper and freeze.
Cook from frozen on a very hot griddle, with the thinnest layer of butter possible. I usually try to remove as much as I can using a kitchen towel.
Turn occasionally until cooked through. Eat immediately with butter and raspberry jam.
