1/1 Photo of Fig and Ginger Scones
Fig and ginger jam or conserve is so delectable on a warm baked bread or scone, so why not bake the fruit and spices right into the dish? This is an Australian recipe adapted in my kitchen.

Units: US | Metric
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon finely minced crystallized ginger (optional)
- 2 tablespoons butter, chilled and finely diced
- 160 g dried figs, very finely chopped or sliced
- 4 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- 1Preheat the oven to 230 Celsius.
- 2Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground ginger together and place in a large bowl.
- 3Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the crystallized ginger and figs then add the combined milk and water and mix gently but thoroughly until the dough comes together.
- 4Turn out the dough, adding a little flour if the dough is sticky. Knead very briefly until the dough is manageable - do not overmix.
- 5Flatten the dough to about 1 inch thickness then use a 2 to 2 1/4 cutter to cut out rounds.
- 6Place the cut rounds on a non-stick baking sheet then gather up any remaining scraps and knead briefly. Cut as many more rounds as possible then place these on the sheet.
- 7Brush the scones with a little milk then bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.
- 8Serve with butter, marmalade or jam.
