I made some date scones,(on request from Derek as they are his favourites) for morning tea. This is a really easy (peasy) recipe that I have adapted from one of Jo Seagars.
1 cup dates
1 1/4 cups milk
3 cups self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt - optional ( I don't put it in unless making cheese scones)
Set oven to 220 Celcius
Pour boiling water over one cup of dates and leave them to sit.
Heat the butter and milk in the microwave approx 2 minutes until butter is melted.
Drain then chop the dates, add to the milk/ butter.
Add the flour. Mix will be quite wet. Place heaped desertspoonfuls on a floured baking tray quite close together.
Bake at 220 for approx 15 mins, or fanbake for approx 9 minutes.
