My son Paul's recipe from school days. Another that became a family favourite. We usually make this with a scone mix and I usually guess how much brown sugar or butter to use. I will have to guess amounts to get this posted. It is also a guess on how many this makes - all I know is how good they are when they come out of the oven. We usually split and butter them.
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, tiny bit less
- 1⁄2 cup milk, bit less
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup butter, not too soft
- Preheat oven to 200degC(400degF).
- Sift flour and salt together; rub butter in lightly with finger tips.
- Pour nearly all the milk in, saving a little for glazing and quickly mix to a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured board and knead lightly and quickly.
- Roll out into a slab about 14" x 8" and less than 1/2" thick; spread thickly with butter then sprinkle with the sugar, again reasonably thick.
- Roll up into a long roll and cut into 1 1/2" or 2” slices; place close together on a baking paper lined tray; brush with milk and cook in a hot oven for about 10 minutes.
