Griddle Cakes – Gypsy Style

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of ground mixed/pumpkin spices
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons shortening or lard
  • 3 tablespoons unrefined light brown muscovado sugar
  • 4 tablespoons currants
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Sugar for sprinkling

Instructions:

Sift the flour, salt, and spices into a mixing bowl and rub in the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Add the sugar, currants, and lemon peel. Beat the egg and milk together and add to the dry ingredients to form a soft dough. Roll out lightly on a floured surface about 1/4 inch thick and cut into 2 inch rounds. Cook on a hot floured griddle or heavy frying pan until golden on both sides. Sprinkle with sugar and serve hot and fresh.
