Baking Scones

g. Its quite enjoyable to mix flour, milk, some dried fruit you have in the fridge together - and after 10 mins in the oven - you come up with something 10 times better.

I found this easy to do scone recipe.

You need 3 cups Self-raising flour

1 and a quarter cup of milk

80g of butter

and a bowl of dried fruit - in this case, dates.

1. I cut up the dates and left them to soak in the milk because they were a little too dry.
2. Mix the Flour with the butter by rubbing them together.
3. Heat the oven to 200 C
4. Clear the Bench Top and sprinkle ordinary flour on it. Rub some of that on your hands to prevent the dough from sticking.
5. Mix the Buttered Flour with the Dates to form the dough - in the bowl.
6. Take it out and stretch or roll the dough out.
7. You can cut the scones out or I just tear them out and pat them to shape.
8. Put them on the baking tray and into the oven they go.
9. After 10 - 15 minutes they're done.
10. Don't leave them on the hot baking tray - place them on the serving plate.
