I love scones and they are so easy to make that I’m cooking a batch every week. The scones are ready in only 20-25 minutes, baking time included.
I’ve made them with wholemeal flour, the texture is slightly different due to all the extra fibers. For a lighter texture, use white or half white, half wholemeal. Also, the scones are sugar free as I felt the dates make them sweet enough. If I make them without dried fruits, I have to add 25g sugar.
For 7 scones:
250g self-rising wholemeal flour
1 tea spoon of baking powder
1 free range egg
Then I’ve added the egg beaten with the milk. The egg should not be added all at once and 2-3 spoons should be kept for glazing the scones before baking. It’s better to have a wet dough, they will rise better.
