Fruit Scones

September 12, 2012


I believe that no matter how hard you work or how good a person you are something or someone will always try to dampen your mood or spirit. The best thing you can do is stay positive and realise that each day is a blessing.  I celebrate my blessings by working harder, smiling, doing the things I love and making others happy.  I wanted to put my mother in an extra cheery mood so I made her fruit scones.  My big bountiful scone puffs tasted magnificent with warm butter.  You wouldn’t believe how amazing you can feel for under a fiver.

This recipe was  adapted  from ‘Asda Magazine’ (Publicis Blueprint Ltd, July 2012).


225g self – raising flour, 55g unsalted butter (chilled and cubed), 50g castor sugar, 150ml skimmed milk, 40g dried fruit.


1. Sift flour and a pinch of salt into the bowl.
2. Add the butter and rub in the mixture using your fingers until it represents fine breadcrumbs.
3. Stir in the sugar.
4. Make a well in the flour and then pour in the milk reserve a tbsp of milk for brushing the tops of the scones.
5. Mix well.
6. On a floured surface need the dough and make into scone shapes until everything has been used up.
7. Pre heat the oven at 220 degrees C.
8. Bake the scones for 11 minutes.

Saffy’s Top Tip

Try adding a dash of cinnamon and swap the castor sugar for soft brown sugar for extra flavour.
