Sultana & Date Scones


What you’ll need…

2 cup self-raising flour

pinch of salt

30 gram butter, cut into small pieces

1/3 cup caster sugar

1/4 cup SUNBEAM sultanas

1/4 cup ANGAS PARK diced pitted dates

1 egg, lightly beaten

3/4 cup milk, plus extra, for glazing


Preheat oven to 220°C (210°C fan-forced).
Line scone tray with non-stick baking paper. Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Add butter and rub in lightly with fingertips.
Add sugar, sultanas & dates and stir to combine. Make a well in the centre of the mixture. Add beaten egg and almost all of the milk. Mix quickly with a flat bladed knife to a soft dough, adding more milk if necessary. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly until smooth. Press or roll out to form a round about 2cm thick.
Cut dough into rounds using a floured plain 5cm cutter. Place scones together, without touching, on prepared tray and brush with extra milk. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
