Today I will be sharing this weeks fruit scone recipe with everyone.
This recipe is great fun to make and uses simple ingredients you probably already have in the cupboard.
This recipe is perfect for making with children aged 2 - 12 as you can vary the degree of complexity based on their ability.
If your children are ver
y young or your short for time you could preweigh the ingredients for them to use. Older children will enjoy weighing and measuring their own ingredients.
Makes 4 - 6 scones.
110g Self Raising Flour
(plus a little extra for dusting)
20g Caster Sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 220c and grease a baking sheet.
2.Place the flour and margarine in a bow then rub the margarine into the flour, keeping your hands high to add air into the mixture
- older children can also sift the flour before adding the margarine.
4. Stir through the sultanas and sugar.
5. Make a well in the centre of the flour and pour in the milk, stir to form a soft dough, you may need to add a little extra flour until the dough is dry enough to lightly handle.
6. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to 2cm thickness. Use a cutter to cut out 4 - 6 scones
-younger children can pat the dough down rather than need a rolling pin then divide the mixture into 4 or 6 chunks and roll into balls to place of the baking tray.
- older children can enjoy experimenting with what shaped cutters make the best scones (try round, crinkle cut, flower, heart etc)
7.Place on the baking tray and bake for 12 – 15 minutes until well risen.
8. Cool on a wire rack before serving.
