A good balance between sweet and sour.

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 50g butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 150ml milk
  • 75g fudge
  • 75g dried cherries
  • To Finish:
  • icing sugar
  • a few dried cherries


    1. Pre-heat oven to 130C/450F/gas 8 and lightly grease two baking trays.
    2. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Cut the butter into small chunks and add them to the flour.
    3. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs. Add the sugar, milk, cherries and fudge.
    4. Use a blunt knife to mix the ingredients together into a soft dough. Press and mould it with your fingers to make it smooth.
    5. Sprinkle an area of work surface with flour and place the dough on it. Roll out until about 1cm thick.
    6. Cut shapes out of the dough. Squeeze the scraps together and roll out again.
    7. Repeat step 6 until all of the dough has been used.
    8. Put the scones onto the prepared baking trays, leaving plenty of room between each scone.
    9. Bake for 7-12 minutes or until golden brown and risen. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
    10. Sprinkle with icing sugar and serve on a plate with a few extra dried cherries.

The temperature is completely wrong. Since when has gas mark 8 been 130 oc? I only looked at the centigrade temp. Have no idea how this recipe might be if the temperature had been correct. Rubbish. Absolute rubbish. By the way, the temp should be 230 0c. Get your numbers right next time Rachel!!!! Will let you know how they are if I get over my disappointment!
