Fruit scones Easy Food
Makes 8
225g self-raising flour
1pinch of salt
50g very cold butter, cut into cubes
120ml milk, plus extra for brushing
25g caster sugar
50g sultanas
  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/200˚C fan/gas mark 7. Brush a baking tray with some melted butter to grease it.
  2. Measure out the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it together with the flour until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and sultanas.
  3. Add the milk to the mixture and stir everything together. Knead the mixture together with your hands until you have formed a stiff dough.
  4. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough gently until it is 2cm thick. Cut out shapes with pastry cutters dipped in flour.
  5. Put the scones on a baking tray and brush them with milk. Put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden. Carefully transfer them to a wire rack and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
