  • Whisk together the flour, baking powder, allspice, and salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter and lard with your fingertips. Add the sugar and raisins.
  • Beat the eggs and add to the mixture along with a little milk, only using enough to make a fairly stiff dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to the thickness of about 1/4 inch and cut into 2 inch rounds with a pastry cutter.
  • Cook on a greased griddle or heavy based frying pan over medium high heat for about 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Dust with sugar and serve warm.
