English Fruity Scones

I saw this recipe on one of the Jamie Oliver’s cooking programme.

So easy to make and delicious, good for our tea time with a cup of english tea.

English Fruity Scones

Ingredients:

  1. Mixed Fruits   120g
  2. Orange juice for soaking
  3. Self-Raising Flour   450g
  4. Baking Powder   2tbsp
  5. Butter    120g
  6. Pinch of Salt
  7. Egg   2 ( large size ), beaten
  8. Milk   5tbsp

Method:

  • Soak the dry fruits with just enough orange juice to cover it for few hours and let it soft to use later.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C, gas mark 4.
  • Sieve the flour and baking powder together, use fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it becomes like breadcrumbs.
  • Make a well in the middle of the flour.
  • Mix the beatened eggs into the milk together, drain the dry fruits, and add into the egg mixture.
  • Add pinch of salt in the flour, then pour the egg and dry fruits mixture into the flour.
  • Slightly fold everything altogether, but not overdo it. If too harsh, the scones will get hard and tough to eat, just keep it slightly fold.
  • Roll out on the floured table about 2cm thick, use a 7cm cookie cutter to cut the dough.
  • Arrange all the scones on a lined baking tray with gap.
  • Brush each scones with milk.
  • Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes, check it is cooked, then cool down on a wire rack.
  • Wait for 10 minutes, and prepare for a nice cup of tea.
  • Enjoy it with clotted cream and jam.
