Method

  1. Beat ½ tsp of each spice and 2 tbsp demerara into the butter, then stir in the apple and raisins. Mix the remaining spices in with the flour.
  2. Put the flour mixture, salt and baking powder into a food processor, then whizz in the butter until it disappears. Pulse in the sugar, tip into a large bowl, then make a well in the middle. Warm the yogurt, milk and vanilla together in the microwave for 1 min or in a pan; it should be hot and may well go a bit lumpy-looking. Tip into the bowl and quickly work into the flour mix using a cutlery knife. As soon as it's all in, stop.
  3. Put a flat baking sheet in the oven at 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Turn the dough onto a floured surface, then roll to about 40 x 30cm. Spread with the fruity butter, then roll up from the long side, tucking the ends over neatly. Cut into 10 triangles. Brush with egg wash and scatter with 1 tbsp demerara. Flour the baking sheet, then bake for 14 mins until golden and risen. Eat warm, with more butter if you dare.

Delicious-easy to go a little mad with the nutmeg though!
Definately be making this again, but agree with Mandinga about it looking rather rustic in comparison to pictured example!

Absolutely delicious - they're even good for a few days after baking. Mine also had a rather 'rustic' appearance compared to the picture, but they were so nice it didn't matter.

These were delicious even though mine came out rather more rustic looking than the photo (the filling spilled out a little as they baked!), they are rather large though, I would cut them smaller and make more next time.
