Fruit Scones

Makes 8

Ingredients
¾ cup self-raising flour
¾ cup wholemeal self-raising flour
4 tbsp margarine, softened
¼ cup light brown sugar
⅓ cup sultanas
¼ cup mixed peel
½ tsp ground mixed spice
1 egg
3 tbsp buttermilk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C. Sift the flours into a large bowl; rub in the margarine with your fingertips. Stir in the brown sugar, sultanas, peel and spice.
  2. In a jug, beat together the egg and buttermilk. Pour into the flour mixture and bring together to make a soft dough.
  3. Lightly dust a work surface with extra flour, then roll out the dough to 2cm. Use a 4cm cutter to make rounds. Re-roll the trimmings and repeat to make more. Transfer to a non-stick baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes, until well risen and golden.
