This is a great recipe for any time of the year, not just the 26th January! I sometimes will make some with my dad as an after school snack….
3 cups of self-raising flour
1 pinch of salt
2-heaped teaspoons of sugar
¾ cups of water
80g of butter, cubed
- Preheat oven to 200ºC and cover a 30cm by 30cm tray with greaseproof paper. Add flour, salt and sugar in a large bowl and then rub the butter in until it resembles breadcrumbs. Just like making scones.
- Add water and knead until it sticks together. If the dough is crumbling add teaspoons until it is dough-like. Roll into a ball and squish until it is about 2½ -4 inches or 5 – 10 cm tall. Place onto the tray. With a sharp knife, cut a cross 1cm deep into the dough.
- Cook for 30ish minutes or until golden brown and when you knock the bottom it sounds hollow. Cool for 5 minutes and enjoy with jam or honey.
