These fruited scones have a little cinnamon and nutmeg added, to give them a little oomph. They are also made with 50% wholemeal flour. Be sure to handle the dough as little as possible, to ensure a light and fluffy scone.
Very nice recipe,very light and fluffy. I used 100g sultanas instead of the currants. Made these scones again,this time I soaked the sultanas in tea for 6 hours and replaced some of the milk with natural yogurt. Still my favourite scone recipe - 06 Jul 2014
Halved the recipe to try. Epic Fail. Dough was too sticky to cut wif pastry cutter. Seems too much liquid even though I follow recipe proportion. End up looking like rock cakes n dry inside. =( - 21 Sep 2014
This is a nice recipe but for some reason the dough remained soft so i made a sort of rock cake instead but they was still very good. With Strawberries and cream they are great! I only used plain flour, about 200g of sugar rather than 4 tablespoons which weighed nearly 100g and i was rather generous with the cinnamon. - 04 Apr 2012
