Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 400F/200C/Gas 6
  2. Mix flour and baking powder into a large baking bowl, add the softened butter or margarine, and lightly rub together with fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the sugar and the dried fruit and mix so all ingredients are well incorporated.
  4. Add the egg and 1 tbsp of the milk and mix to create a stiff dough. If the mixture is still dry add milk a tbsp at a time until required consistency.
  5. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  6. Using a tablespoon divide the mixture into 12 mounds evenly spaced on the 2 baking sheets. If you are an experienced baker you likely already own a small scoop which will make quick work and perfect cakes.
  7. Sprinkle with the demerara sugar.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown and well risen.
