DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour and salt together in a large bowl. (Hint: If your store doesn't carry self raising flour, just add 2 2/3 tsp baking powder to this recipe.).
  • Cut the margarine into cubes and work it into the flour with your fingers, until the mixture becomes like fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add the sugar and pineapple, then the beaten egg. Mix until you get a stiff dough, adding milk as necessary (you may not need all 3 tbsp).
  • Flour your work surface and roll the dough out. Cut into rounds.
  • Lightly grease a frying pan with some margarine and fry the cakes for a few minutes on each side, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve.
