Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and then rub in the fat until it becomes like coarse breadcrumbs.
  2. Stir in the melted syrup and then add enough milk to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and roll until quite thin. Using a cutter, cut into rounds of about 1½ inches (3.8cm) in diameter.
  3. Place the rounds on a floured baking sheet and cook in a pre-heated oven at 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5 for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Serve hot, spread with butter.
