  • 500 g plain flour (regular cake or all purpose flour not bread or wholewheat / wholegrain
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 310 ml milk
  1. Heat the oven to 190°C Fan (210C (regular) / 375°F / GM 6. Place a baking stone or heavy baking sheet in the oven to heat.

  2. Mix the dry ingredients. Stir in the milk, and bring the dough together by stirring the ingredients until the milk is mixed with with flour and forms a dough. It's easiest to do this with your hands rather than a wooden spoon. 

  3. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and knead briefly until the dough has a uniform consistency.

  4. Shape the dough into a round disc about an inch to an inch and a half (about 3cm) thick and score the top. This is important! Don't make a round ball of dough as it won't cook in the middle.

  5. Bake on the hot stone or baking sheet at for about 35 minutes until pale brown and sounding hollow when tapped on the bottom.
