Fruit Scones

Fruit Scones

Ingredients:

  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 30g butter
  • 30g sugar
  • 12 5ml milk
  • 50g raisins or mixed fruit

Method:

Preheat the oven to 210°C

Sieve flour into a bowl, add the butter and rub to form breadcrumbs.

Add the sugar and dried fruit and mix well.

Gradually add the milk to form a firm but not wet dough.

Place this on a floured surface and press out till 3-4cm thick.

Cut with a pastry cutter and place on a greased baking tray.

Brush with milk

Bake for 10 minutes then place on a cooling rack.

I would use the top rack with the extender ring on for best results.

You can leave out the fruit for a plain scone or add grated cheese and a pinch of paprika or cayenne for a savoury scone.
