  • 1 cup flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 12 tsp muscovado sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tbsp cold butter, cubed
  • 5 tbsp ice water
  1. In a food processor combine flour and cold butter, process until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Pour in ice water then continue until it clumps into one dough. Remove the dough from the food processor then place in a flour dusted work surface, knead gently then divide into six pieced.
  3. Flatten each piece with your finger, add 2 tsp of muscovado sugar in the middle, fold edges like a dumpling then roll into a flat circle roughly 4 inched in diameter. Do it with the remaining dough then cook in a pan with a bit of oil until golden brown on both sides.
  4. Serve as a whole or you can slice them into sections.
