    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 inch round cake pan. Sift flour into a bowl. Cut in 1/4 cup butter until crumbly. Add 1 cup milk and mix until soft and sticky. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out into an 8 x 12 inch rectangle.
    2. Cream remaining butter and brown sugar then spread over dough, leaving a 1/3 inch border. Combine currants, cherries, candied peel and cinnamon then scatter over dough. Roll up from long edge to form a log then cut into 10 slices. Arrange in prepared pan and bake for 25 mins or until golden. Remove from oven. Let cool in pan for 2 mins then transfer to a wire rack.
