You could try this one, Glenshena:
1 1/2 oz margarine or butter
8 oz S.R. flour
2tsp. baking powder
1 oz caster sugar
1/4 pt. milk
1/2 tsp. salt

Put all dry ingredients in a bowl & rub in the margarine or butter until the dough resembles breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre & add milk. Mix to a soft, light but not sticky dough. Roll out 1/2" thick & cut into rounds. Bake at 425°F/220°C on the top shelf for about 10 minutes. (From A Cookbook for the Millenium, St. Cuthbert's Saltcoats).

If you don't have S.R. flour, it's easy to make:
Add 2 tsp. of baking powder for each 150g/6oz/1 cup plain flour. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl before using, to make sure the baking powder is thoroughly distributed. If you are baking with cocoa, yogurt or buttermilk then add 1/4 tsp. baking soda as well as the baking powder as generally these ingredients need a little extra leavening boost. (From Nigella Lawson).
It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Thanks Hahaya.. I'll give it a try. Yes we don't have self raising flower, and neither baking soda. I've tried two recipes but no luck so far.
