Grease 2 baking trays
, and set your oven to 200C.
Rub the fat into the flour, salt and spices until the mixture resembles
fine breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar and raisins. Make a well in the
centre, pour in the egg, lemon juice, and a little milk and stir in the
dry ingredients, adding more milk, if necessary, to give a stiff dough.
Spoon the mixture into small piles on the trays and bake for a quarter of an
hour to 20 minutes.
If you leave out the baking powder
you get ... biscuits!
