Hints and Tips
It is essential to use self-raising flour and NOT plain flour for this recipe as the scones will not rise if plain flour is used.
These scones can be made larger or smaller than specified however the cooking time will vary.
We like to enjoy these scones while they are still a little warm and smeared with a generous amount of butter, however you can also top them with your favourite jam (my boys like to eat them with Apricot Jam) and even a little fresh cream if you like.
Store cooked scones in an airtight container and enjoy within five days. These Sultana Scones can also be frozen for up to two months.
We recommend placing the scones close together on the baking tray (so that they are almost touching) to help them rise up instead of outwards. It is also important to not overwork the scone dough as this will give them a dense texture.
Brushing scones with milk or cream before baking helps to give them a lovely golden crust.
Cooke scones can be placed into a freezer safe container and frozen for up to two months.
