    1 hour 23 minutes

    These currant tea cakes remind me of my grandmother. If you don't want to use raisins substitute with sultanas or mixed fruit.

    1. In a mixing bowl mix together the flour, salt, sugar, yeast and milk powder.
    2. Add water and mix until soft and pliable; around 5 minutes. More or less water may vary due to flour protein content.
    3. When mixed tip out on work surface and work by hand.
    4. Finally add fruit evenly by hand until dispersed evenly. Divide into balls; each roll should be scaled at 90g.
    5. Each teacake should be balled, moulded and rested 5 minutes before pinning out into teacake shapes.
