Singing hinnies are a fried scone or griddle cake which originate from North East England. Serve warm with butter and jam for a delicious tea time treat
8oz plain flour
4 oz butter
2 oz sultanas or currants
half teaspoon salt
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
Rub in the butter until you get a mixture that looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Add the sultanas
Gradually add the milk until you get a stiff dough.
Roll out into a round circle around a centimetre (½ inch) thick.
Use a cutter to cut into circle shapes.
Lightly grease a frying pan or griddle and place the circles of dough on it. Prick the top with a fork. Cook gently for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway though. It should be golden brown on both sides.
Best served warm straight from the pan. They can also be stored and eaten cold
