 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           Plain flour
      1/4   ts           Bicarbonate of Soda
      1/2   ts           Cream of Tartar
      1/2   ts           Salt
    3       oz           Lard
    3       oz           Currants
                         Milk
 
   Lightly grease a large thick based frying pan or girdle.
   
   Sift flour, bicarb, cream of tartar and salt into a bowl. Add lard, cut
   into small pieces, and rub in with the fingertips until mixture resembles
   fine breadcrumbs. Add currants and about 6 tablespoons milk; stir with a
   fork until just mixed to a soft dough. Place frying pan over a low heat.
   
   Turn out onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out to a circle, 8
   inches diameter. Place in frying pan and cook until golden brown on
   underside - about 15 minutes. Turn with a fish-slice; lightly press down
   edges with the slice and cook on the other side for a further 8 to 10
   minutes.
   
   Remove from pan. Split in half with a sharp knife, spread half with butter,
   sandwhich together and cut into wedges. Serve hot.
   
   From:- “The Cupboard was Bare” Some recipes for “Empty Larder days” by
   Sylvia Percival (my wife)
   
   This is a recipe we picked up when we were living in County Durham -
   Northern England. Very popular because it’s cheap, simple, filling, and
   delicious.
