  3. Pour egg mixture into flour mixture, and mix to create a soft dough. Divide dough in half and roll into two rounds 1cm thick. Place rounds on baking tray, scoring each into 8 wedges.

Quick, tasty and easy enough for the little ones to get involved. I made 16 individual ones. I used a 50/50 mix of white sugar and brown, and added more sultanas, just cause that's what I had. Nice afternoon tea served warm with butter and jam. - 30 Jun 2014


Definately yum I substituted the currants with sultanas, white sugar for brown, and added a little cinnamon. Really quick and easy to make. - 30 Jul 2012
