This recipe calls for currants, but I like to sometimes add a variety of dried fruits. A hearty but light scone that's perfect for tea time.
Rather than making wedges, you can use a round pastry cutter to form round scones. Just check them after baking for 10 minutes, as they'll need less time in the oven.
Used different ingredients. I dropped the currents (i didnt have any) and added 75g of Sultana's, 75g of Glace Cherries, and 75g of dried Apricots. This made a very nice fruity scone. - 24 Sep 2010
these were delicious especially warm from the oven. I made them into individual scones rather than one and they were perfect after about 12 minutes. I will definitely be making them again. Thank you - 11 Nov 2012
I found the mixture too runny and would probably try less milk next time. Other than that they are delicious! - 27 Aug 2009
