Everyone loves scones. I have always made scones since I was little as they so easy to make and taste delicious.  They are easy to create if unexpected guests turn up and no problem serving them up shortly after they come out of the oven as they taste better warm anyway.


225g self raising flour
75g butter
50 g mixed fruit
40g caster sugar
1 egg
3-4 tablespoons milk


Pre-heat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7.

Sift the flour into a large bowl.  Add the sugar and butter and rub together until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.

Add to the bowl the dried fruit, egg and milk.  Mix together using your hands until a soft dough is formed, adding more milk if required. 

Place the dough on a lightly floured surface a roll out with a rolling pin until 3 cm deep.  Use a pastry cutter to cut out your scones and place on a baking sheet.  Dust with flour and bake for 12-15 minutes until they have risen and turned golden brown.

Allow to cool on a wire rack.  Serve with cream and jam.
