Often when I visit my mum we talk and exchange recipes. And while we both enjoy food that tastes good and is wholesome and nutritious (as well as both having a bit of a sweet tooth), we're also no-nonsense cooks. We enjoy making recipes with what's available in the fridge and pantry, and not always having to labour over steps and details. Yesterday she wanted to share her most current favourite recipe - sultana scones. When it came to making them, the girls wanted to help too. It was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon.

2 cups self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
60g butter, chilled
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sultanas

1. Pre-heat oven to 220-degrees celcius. Mix all the dry ingredients. Crumble in the butter. Stir in milk.
2. Roll out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface. Cut shapes with a round cutter, about 3cm high.
3. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush with milk. Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.

  1. Lovely recipe to bake with granny. Fab styling as always, you are a total inspiration to me! (Hope that's not too gushing!)

    1. Very kind of you to say, and sorry for the slow reply. Appreciate you taking the time to visit and write.
