Ingredients

  • 225g plain flour
  • 100g vegan margarine
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 75g currants
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100ml almond milk to bind

 

Method

  • Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl and rub in the margarine or butter. Add the sugar and currants and stir well
  • Pour the milk in and mix until you have a stiff dough
  • Roll the dough out on a lightly floured board until 5mm (1/4 inch) thickness and stamp out rounds with a pastry/biscuit cutter
  • Heat the pan over a medium heat until hot and grease with a little marg – the pan should be well-greased, and then heated until a little water sprinkled on the surface skips about in balls, evaporating. Cook the cakes for about 3 to 4 minutes each side, until they are golden brown and have risen slightly
