As soon as a batch would come out of the oven, Dad and I would sit to the table with our cups of tea and have a warm raisin tea bun with a little dab of butter. These are the happy memories I will always cherish.
Here is the ingredient list:
➤ 3 cups flour
➤ ¾ cup sugar
➤ 4 teaspoons baking powder
➤ ½ teaspoon salt
➤ 1 cup butter
➤ 1 cup raisins
➤ 1 cup milk
➤ Mix all the ingredients together up to the raisins on the list. Only mix for about 30 seconds.
➤ Add your raisins. Mix for 10 seconds.
➤ Add your cup of milk last. Mix for 10 seconds.
➤ When it is all mixed together you can lay it out on your table. Knead it all into a ball.
➤ Separate it into 4 sections and roll out each piece.
➤ Use a glass or a cookie cutter to cut out discs.
➤ Lay them on an un-greased cookie sheet.
➤ Bake for about 12 minutes at 325.
