Simple Scones

A perfect way to celebrate afternoon tea week with these fruity rich scones!


225g (8oz) self raising flour

Pinch of salt

50g (2oz) margarine

25g (1oz) Caster sugar

50g (2oz) currants/sultanas 

1 egg with milk to make 150 ml (1/4 pint) liquid.

This recipe makes 8.

  • Mix flour and salt, rub in margarine then stir in sugar and fruit.
  • Pour in egg mixture reserving a bit to brush the tops with.
  • Lightly knead on a floured surface then roll out to 1cm (1/2 inch) thick and cut into rounds.
  • Brush the tops with egg mix and bake for about 10 minutes.

Once cooled ,slice and fill with the customary  jam & cream or my alternative filling consists of Ambrosia dream topping and fresh strawberries. It turns this traditional tea time treat into a delicate dessert.
