  1. In the bowl, mix the flour and lard together by hand, and then add the baking powder, salt and the currants, raisins or sultanas.
  2. Next, add the water and work the ingredients into a dough.
  3. Now, you have two options: the camp fire or the oven.
  4. To cook over a camp fire, divide the dough into four lumps and firmly wrap each lump around the end of a four foot stick and prop securely over the fire until golden brown.
  5. To cook in an oven, spread the dough out into a 16" square cake pan.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
