Yesterday, I baked some very yummy Fruit Scones for my Afternoon Tea. For all you guys who love Fruit Scones, this recipe is definitely worth to try. 😀
Recipe (makes 14-16)
- 325 g self-raising flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 50 g butter, softened
- 25 g granulated sugar
- 60 g mixed dried fruit
- 1 large egg
- a little milk
Preheat the oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/gas 7. Lightly grease the baking sheets.
Measure the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and the dried fruit. Break the egg into a measuring jug and beat, then make up to 150 ml with milk. Stir the egg and milk into the flour and mix to a soft but not sticky dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and roll out to a 1cm thickness. Cut into rounds with a fluted 5cm cutter and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Brush the tops with a little milk.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until pale golden brown. Lift the scones onto a wire rack to cool. Eat as fresh as possible.
