    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Lightly grease a baking tray or line with baking parchment.
    2. Sift flour and baking powder into a medium bowl. Rub butter and sugar into flour to form a fine crumble. Make a well in centre, and add milk and currants. Knead gently together, being careful not to over mix. Dough will be sticky.
    3. On a generously floured surface, roll out dough to 2cm thickness. Stamp out 5cm rounds with a pastry cutter. Transfer to prepared tray, and brush tops with egg yolk. Allow to stand for 15 minutes.
    4. Bake in preheated oven until risen and lightly golden on top, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool.
