Good Housekeeping Recipe:

This is the one I've always used . makes about 10.

8 oz self raising flour
1 teaspn baking powder
pinch salt
1.5 oz butter or margarine
1.5 oz sugar
2 oz sultanas or currants
1/4 pt milk (one quarter)

Sift flour, salt and baking powder into bowl
cut butter into small pieces and rub in (as for pastry) till mixtrue resembles breadcrumbs. (you can do this stage in a food processor)
Stir in sugar and fruit.
Add milk slowly, stirring with a palette knife until mixture just binds together
Collect the mixture in your hand and form into a ball
Roll out onto a floured board - about 1" thick.
Cut into rounds
Place on baking sheet
brush tops with milk
Bake at mark 8 (hot oven) till well risen and golden
turn out onto rack till cool

Replace milk with buttermilk if you can get it.

8oz sr flour
1/2tsp salt
2oz butter
1oz sugar
1/4 pint milk
egg to glaze
2oz sultanas if you like them (personally i have to have them!)

the mix should be very lose floured hands to handle then just squished down on the top no need to roll out if you have right consistancy as the dough should be easy to flatten.
Dont roll out too thin i do mine about 3-4cm thick
When putting on the backing tray my auntie told me to put them so they are touching each other, this helps them to rise higher rather than wider
(She used to make them everyday for years at her B&B in lynmouth) so guess she knows what she is doing
