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
30g dates
1 tea spoon of baking powder
35g butter
125ml milk
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.

The dough should not the kneaded too much. Just mix the ingredients very well and that’s it. I flattened the dough with the hands.
