  • 1 x Baking Tray
  • Thermomix


  • 70 grams dates see notes
  • 300 grams self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 15 grams sugar
  • 50 grams butter chopped into pieces.
  • 1 egg
  • 140 grams milk plus extra to brush.


  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced).
  • 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 -15 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 butter or your favourite jam.


  • You can use either pitted or Medjool Dates for this recipe. If using Medjool Dates, make sure you remove the seed before trying to cut into pieces.
  • If making these scones in a Thermomix and using Medjool Dates, you will not need to chop them for as long.
  • The scone mixture will be quite sticky, this is normal. Just add a little extra flour to your bench to help bring the mixture together.
  • This recipe makes approximately 9 scones, you can make them smaller/larger if you wish, however the baking time will vary.
  • To help the scones rise, I like to place them on the baking tray so that they are almost touching.
  • You can leave the sugar out of this recipes if you wish.
  • These scones are freezer friendly.
