250g self-raising flour
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons golden caster sugar (or just ordinary sugar)
30ml sunflower oil
Heat a heavy based frying pan (or griddle if you have one). Sift the flour, salt and bicarb into a bowl. Make a well in the middle and break in the egg, oil and enough of the milk to make a soft dough. Don’t over do the mixing. Tip onto a floured board and shape into a round about 2cm thick. Cut into quarters and dust lightly with flour. Cook for about 5 minutes and then turn over to do the other side. They are cooked when there is no liquid visible in the middle. Serve warm with soups or stews. Or allow to cool and then split open and use like a roll.
