Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp mixed spice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 80g butter

    Method

    Combine 3 cups of flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl.

    Rub in the butter until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

    Stir through the raisins and mixed peel.

    Whisk eggs and milk together then quickly mix into dry’s to form a dough.

    Tip out onto a floured bench and press into an even rectangle roughly 30x15cm (it doesn’t need to be exact).

    Cut the dough into 12 equal pieces then transfer to a floured baking tray. Mix the second measure of flour together with ¼ cup of water to form a paste.

    Pour mixture into a piping bag and pipe crosses onto the top of each scone. Bake for 20-25mins at 150°C. Serve with lashings of butter.
