  • 225g self raising flour
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • Place the flour, sugar & butter into a large bowl and rub together until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs
  • Mix together the milk & lemon juice and leave to stand for a few minutes - it should thicken up like buttermilk.
