Instructions

Cover the raisins with boiling water and let stand about 5 minutes.  Drain and allow to cool.

Combine the biscuit mix, spices, and 2 tablespoons sugar.  In another bowl, combine the egg and tea with the raisins.  Stir this into the biscuit mixture.

Preheat oven to 450º F and place a teaspoon of butter in an 8-inch square baking dish.  Put the dish in the oven for about a minute until very hot (the butter will have melted).  Pour the biscuit batter into the pan and bake 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, whip the cream with a fork, adding 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Brush this over the biscuit loaf.

Turn the oven to broil.  Place the loaf under the broiler to brown the glaze.

Makes 9 squares.  Leftovers can be re-heated or toasted.
