DIRECTIONS

  • Add lemon juice to milk and set aside for 5 minutes until milk thickens.
  • Sift flour and baking powder.
  • Rub in butter (use a food processor, if available).
  • Add dates and milk and mix quickly to a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface, knead lightly and pat to 2.5 cm thickness. Cut into 12 scones.
  • Place scones on a non-stick baking tray, leaving about 1 cm between them.
  • Brush tops with a little milk (so they will brown) and bake in a hot oven (220 C) for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool on a rack for scones with crisp edges or wrap in a clean teatowel to cool for soft-edged scones.
  • Split to serve with jam or low fat spread.
