Ingredients
  • ngredients
  • 2cups plain wholemeal flour
  • 4tsp baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 50g cold butterchopped into cubes
  • 1cup chopped dates
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1cup milk
Instructions
  1. Heat your oven to 220°C and line a tray with baking paper. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on the tray.
  2. In a large bowl, place the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs (this can take a few minutes).
  4. Add in the dates, orange zest and then half of the milk, adding more as you go (you may not need all of it).
  5. Mix the dough very lightly with a butter knife until just combined. It may be a little sticky but that’s OK. Don’t over work the dough or the scones will be tough.
  6. Place your dough onto your tray and bring it together into a circular shape. Flatten it slightly and then use a sharp knife to cut it into 8 wedges.
  7. Spread out the dough wedges so that they aren’t touching each other.
  8. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  9. Serve immediately while still warm.
