DIRECTIONS

  • Prehaeat fan forced oven to 180c.
  • Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl. Add the dates, walnuts and lemon zest & mix lightly. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and set bowl aside.
  • Whisk the milk, cream and the eggs in a seperate small bowl and pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture.
  • Using your fingertips, gently draw the flour mixture into the milk mixture to form a soft dough. (Do not overwork the dough or scones will be too tough).
  • Tip the dough onto a clean, floured work surface and gently form into a ball. Press dough lightly using fingertips ~ just to flatten dough.
  • Gently roll out the dough until 2-3cm thick then using a 5-6cm scone cutter cut the dough into rounds. Place rounds on a non stick baking tray and brush each round with a little milk.
  • Bake scones for 20 minutes or until golden.
  • Serve warm with favourite topping.
