Sultana Scones

Everyone was working hard on Sunday around the house. So I decided to make some scones, everyone's favourite. I always make plain but thought I'm going to give Nan's sultana scones a try. 
They turned out just as I remembered. I promise, you start eating them and it is very hard to stop.

What you will need

Makes about 8 

2 1/2 cups of self raising flour
1/4 tsp of salt
2 tbsp of butter
1/2 - 3/4 cup of sultanas
2 tbsp of caster sugar 
3/4 cup of milk 
1 egg


1. Sift flour and salt into large bowl.
2. Rub in butter quickly with finger tips.
3. Add sultanas. 
4. In a large jug add milk, egg and sugar, making sure to dissolve sugar completely. 
5. Mix into a moist dough using a knife. Sometimes you may need to add a small amount more of flour. 
6. Turn onto floured board and press out to about 1 inch thick. Mixture can be very sticky.
7. Cut into scones and place on a floured tray touching each other, so that they will help each other rise.
8. Brush with milk.
9. Bake in a hot oven for about 12 minutes .
10. Wrap in tea towel to cool. 
11. Best eaten hot with butter, Jam and cream to be really naughty. 

* don't be scared to add more flour or milk, sometimes I need to. 

I hope you enjoy. Leave me a comment to let me know if you try them.

    I did exactly the same on the weekend, made sultana scones but I did a gluten free version. They didn't last long with all the kids visiting.
