    -2oz sugar and 2oz margarine,cream it together with the back of a spoon.

    -4oz self raising flour and 2 eggs (beaten with a little bit of milk)
    add a little flour to the marg/sugar mix and then a little egg,mix with spoon,continue till all the egg and flour are in.

    cook at 190-gas mark 5 (adjust for fan oven) for approx 15-20 minutes.
    Check them throughout but dont open the oven untill they have risen.

    Icing sugar with butter and about a teaspoon of milk creamed together.You can add vanilla or any other flavour and colour if you want.
