About this recipe: I try to stick to wholemeal flour and wholegrain cereals, but I only occasionally see any recipes for wholemeal baking. So here is a recipe for wholemeal fruit scones which I have tried and tested. I have used extra virgin olive oil instead of butter for a change. It's supposed to be healthy, works well and is so convenient to use. I prefer the lighter texture of the scones without egg and have not found it necessary to add salt. The yoghurt and spice give extra flavour.
If desired, the scones can be frozen in a sealed cake tin after cooling to room temperature. Then defrosted as required in a microwave for 1 minute on high before eating.
If you are using wholemeal self raising flour you do not need to use the bicarb and cream of tartar.
