Fruit Scones

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.
