   crumbly.  Make a well in centre.
 
   In a small bowl, beat egg until frothy.  Mix in buttermilk. Stir with a
   fork to make a soft dough.  Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead
   lightly 8 - 10 times.  Divide into two parts.  Pat each part into 6 inch

   oven until risen and browned.  Serve hot with lots of butter.
 
   NOTE: Raisins or currants may be added if desired.
