    30 min

    A delectable variation on the traditional scone. A helpful tip is to use a good quality yoghurt with plenty of fruit bits in it.

    Serves: 6 

    • 225g (8 oz) plain flour
    • 2 dessertspoons baking powder
    • 50g (2 oz) butter
    • 125g (4 oz) strawberry yoghurt
    • 2 tablespoons full-fat milk, or as needed

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas mark 7.
    2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles a crumbly texture. Add the yoghurt all at once and mix briefly to form a soft dough.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 2 to 3cm (1 in) in thickness. Dip a 5cm (2 in) round cutter into some flour and stamp out 12 scones. (You may have to re-roll the dough to get 12.) Place scones 5cm apart onto baking trays. Brush tops with milk.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until risen and golden brown. Best served freshly baked with butter.

    Used different ingredients. I added 100g of caster sugar to make them sweeter.  -  23 Dec 2009


    They have a sort of mild taste but with a hint of strawberry yoghurt. I loved them and would definetly recommend them to a friend. Very easy to make  -  23 Dec 2009


    This is a great recipe! You could even vary the yogurt flavour for a change! I think cherry would be great! Either way, they won't be around for long! Lovely recipe. Thank you.  -  29 Nov 2010
