Makes 16 - It's afternoon tea time

Oat Scones

Scones make me think of my grandmother, Dulcie and slow afternoons that were filled with comforting cups of tea and long stories. A good friend of mine shared this recipe with me recently and it has quickly become a favourite.

  • 600g self-raising flour
  • 40g coconut sugar
  • 250ml thickened cream
  • 375ml milk
  • 50g rolled oats
  • jam and pure cream to serve

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees.

Combine the flour and coconut sugar in a large bowl then pour in the cream and cut in with a broad bladed butter knife. Mix in the milk.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and pat together into a rectangle about 2.5cm thick. Cut the top of the dough into 16 equal squares.

Using a pastry brush, brush the top with a little extra milk and sprinkle on the oats.

Place on a non-stick baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes. If you like a high bake scone with a golden crust eat them as they are, but if you prefer a softer crust, wrap the hot scones in a clean tea towel for a few minutes.

Serve with jam and cream (or butter, if preferred).

Enjoy xx
