Ingredients

  • 150

    g butter

  • 150

    g caster sugar

  • 560

    g plain flour, sifted

  • 3

    egg yolks

  • generous pinch of saffron

  • 1

    tbsp mixed spice

  • 1

    tsp allspice

  • 3

    tbsp currants

  • 2

    tsp milk

Directions

Method: Crush the saffron in a pestle and mortar, add the milk and grind to combine. Sift together the flour and remaining spices into a bowl. In the meantime, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat the egg yolks and add to the creamed mixture a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the sifted flour and spice mix and stir in the currants. Add the milk and saffron mixture and enough additional milk to form a soft dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface and shape into flat cakes about 5 or 6cm in diameter. Transfer to a well-buttered baking tray and place in an oven pre-heated to 180°C and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly golden. Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
