Mix the flour with the salt, then rub in the butter

Stir in sugar and fruit

Beat the egg then add this and enough milk to make a stiff dough with the flour

Roll the dough out on a flour dusted surface and cut out rounds or whatever shape you fancy using a cutter or cup/mug

Reroll the trimmings until all the dough has been used

Cook on a greased griddle for approximately 3 minutes on each side
