Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Grease or flour a baking tray.

  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon into a bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the dates.

  3. Add the milk and quickly mix with a round-bladed table knife to a soft dough. For light and tender scones the mixture should be quite soft and a little sticky. Scrape the dough onto the floured baking tray and flour the top.

  4. Working quickly, pat the dough out to 2cm thickness and with a floured knife cut it into 12 even-sized pieces, then separate the scones to allow 2cm space between them. Brush the tops with milk and sprinkle with a mix of cinnamon and sugar if desired.

  5. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Place on a wire rack to cool, wrapped in a clean tea towel to keep them soft.
