I make these fruit scones using Scone Mix which I keep permanently in the fridge. Just add these extra ingredients and you will have fresh scones in a very short time.
2 x 250 ml (2 cups) Scone Mix
5 ml baking powder
45 ml sugar (optional)
90 g currants
125 ml milk
Blend the scone mix, baking powder, sugar and currants together. Add the milk and mix with a knife until the mixture just comes together. (You might need a little more milk.) Do not overmix. The less handling the lighter the scone.
Put the ball of dough on a floured board and press until about 18 mm thick. Using a 5 cm cutter cut out scones, place on a baking tray and bake at 220 C for about 10 minutes.
Serve warm with butter and jam.
Makes about 9 or 10.
