Makes 10 scones using a 6cm round cutter.
These are a delicious treat; great for afternoon tea, or to pop in your bag for a family day out. They are also really easy to knock up, and can be frozen and simply pulled out the freezer as required.
- 2 cups self-raising flour
- pinch of nutmeg
- 60g spread (Nuttelex)
- 150g chopped dates
- 1 granny smith apple, grated
- 2 tsp caster sugar
- 3 tbs milk (So Good Coconut)
- 2 tbs water
- Extra milk
- Preheat oven to 180ºc (fan forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper
- Combine milk and water.
- Sift flour and nutmeg into a bowl, then rub the spread in with your fingertips, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in dates, apple and sugar.
- Make a well in the flour and pour in the milk/water mixture. Mix until a dough is formed. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently
- Pat out until 2cm thick. Cut out with your chosen cutter and transfer to the tray, leaving space between the scones.
