Yesterday I made carrot soup for lunch. Just before we were going to eat it I took a phone call from a family friend and the bread mix which I was working on was left in the bowl. We had our usual wholemeal bread with the soup and it was good.
Left with the mix for flat bread this morning, I threw in a few currants and fried it in the pan. It was a treat for breakfast with a spread of butter and home made blackcurrant jam.
Take a good amount of self raising flour and add a little sugar and mixed spice. Throw in a few currants and mix to a stiff dough with milk. Heat some oil in a moderately warm frying pan. Divide the dough and flatten to less than a centimetre. Bake in the pan on both sides until firm. Cool for a few minutes.
This is almost Canadian trail bread or a giant Welsh cake.
