  1. Heat oven to 230C/210 Fan/450F.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt through a sieve into a bowl.
  3. Using your fingers, rub the cubed butter into the flour, until you have a coarse mixture.
  4. Add the sugar and sultanas and mix well.
  5. Mix the beaten egg  and milk together and slowly add to the dry ingredients, kneading it into a soft dough. Do not overwork the dough!
