    • 275g butter
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 2 eggs
    • 4 cups (500g) plain flour
    • 175g raisins

    1. Preheat a griddle to moderate heat. Grease lightly.
    2. Beat sugar and butter together, adding salt and baking powder. Beat in eggs. Add 2 cups flour and raisins and mix. Then add remaining flour. If too dry add a little milk; if too wet add a little flour.
    3. Roll out about 5mm thick and cut out biscuits.
    4. Place on a greased griddle and brown on both sides.
