Singing Hinny Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 12

225 g/8 oz/2 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp salt
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp baking powder
50 g/2 oz lard (shortening)

50 g/2 oz butter or margarine

100 g/4 oz currants
120 ml/4 fl oz milk
Oil for greasing

Method:

Mix together the dry ingredients, then rub in the lard and butter or margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the currants and make a well in the centre. Mix in enough of the milk to make a stiff dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to about 1 cm/0.5 in thick and prick the top with a fork. Heat a griddle or heavy-based frying pan (skillet) and grease it lightly. Cook the cake for about 5 minutes until the underside is golden, then turn and cook the other side for about 4 minutes. Serve split and buttered.
