Jaqui's Cook Book

Sconners!

I have to thank Connor for this recipe for sultana scones.  We have applied our very own Cook 'n' Consumer Test and they have more than earned their place on the Cook Book page.

 

 

 

 

200 g of self-raising flour

50g margarine

50g caster sugar

125 ml milk

50 g sultanas

 

Sieve the flour into a large bowl, add the margarine and mix with the fingers until of breadcrumb consistency. (In our family, we call this "doing fingertips.")  Add the sugar and the sultanas.

 

Add half the milk and stir it in.  Keep adding small amounts of milk until the mixture sticks together but isn't sloppy (add more flour if it does get sloppy.)  Roll the mixture into a big ball, flour a surface and put the dough ball on top.  Squish the ball until it makes a circular shape about the height of your thumb-nail.  Cut out small circles (we used a small cup as that's what Connor suggested).  Brush the scones with milk then cook in a pre-heated oven at about 160 degrees till golden brown.

 

Spread with butter, jam, or whatever you fancy.  Eat and enjoy.

 

Thanks, Connor - great recipe!

Going by our experience Mr.B. will soon be very hard to winkle out of said chair, so comfortable is it!

These chairs are wonderful if, as you say, a smidgen, a humungous smidgen, expensive! Both my stepmother and mother-in-law had one.

Mmm, was it because there were '24 men kicking a ball' that it didn't end entirely satisfactorily???
