    Sift flour, baking powder and salt together and rub in fats until mixture is like fine breadcrumbs. Stir in currants and mix with enough milk to make a stiff paste. Roll into a large cake half an inch thick (or cut into three-inch rounds), prick top and put on a greased griddle or frying pan. Cook both sides until golden, split and butter.
