Ingredients

  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 50 g butter - chopped
  • 1/2 cup dates chopped into 1-2 cm pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 150 ml milk plus extra to brush.

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  • Place the pitted dates into your Thermomix bowl and chop for 8 seconds on speed 5 - set aside until needed.
  • Place the self raising flour, baking powder and butter into the bowl of your Thermomix and blitz for 10 seconds on speed 9 or until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the chopped dates, milk, egg, salt and caster sugar and mix for 10 seconds on speed 4 or until combined.
  • Use the kneading function to mix for 40 seconds.
  • Pour onto a floured surface and gently work the mixture into a rectangle which is approximately 3cm thick.
  • Coat a round cutter in flour and cut our your scones. Place them close together (you want the to almost be touching) on your baking tray. Continue until you have used all the mixture.
  • Brush with a little milk and place the tray into the oven for approximately 12 minutes. The scones are ready when they begin to turn golden and make a hollow sound when tapped.
  • Carefully remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with your favourite jam and fresh whipped cream.

Note** You can also slice the dates with a sharp knife instead of using your Thermomix. If you use Medjool dates you won’t need to chop them for as long.

  1. Hi,
    I have made these twice but both times they have come out quite wet. I always have to add a lot of flour at the end. Am I doing something wrong?

      Hi Melissa,

      thanks for your feedback. Are you adding 300g of self raising flour? If you are finding them too soft, I’d suggest halving the milk you add and then if too dry add a little extra. I hope that helps xx

      1. Thanks, I’ll try adding half the milk. Yep, I’m using 300g SF flour. By the end though it’s more like 400g. I don’t know how I could be going wrong! I’ll try half milk. 🙂

  2. I made these today and they were absolutely delicious. I used Medjool dates, pitted and sliced with a knife, not the TM. Topped with raspberry jam and a dollop of cream they were a hit with the family, though they would have been equally yum with just butter.

  3. 5 stars
    Great recipe thanks! Turned out beautifully, even better with the addition of the grated rind of one orange (my personal preference). Soft on the inside, delicious spread with plum jam and dollop cream.
