Glad you use currants. Authentic family recipe here and my gran's were renowned.

Know what you mean, S - I'm I've gained more than five pounds eating those darned brownies...why? I don't even like them that much! Not exactly a health food either.

The Welsh cakes all went though, strangely so I didn't get a chance with those.

Ha, that's where I got this recipe from, CFR - my grandmother. And yes, I'd have used currants if I could (none at local shops) - and I don't always sprinkle with sugar at the end, usually, either.
