Sugar Free Fruit Scones

So sorry for the delay in writing up the recipe for the Sugar Free Scones. I know I promised you the write up for it a few days ago, but things got a bit busy again, and it completely slipped my mind!

Anyway... here they are - and I can honestly say they were really tasty... look at the bottom for the recipe. 

If you try them, can you leave me a comment to let me know what you think? Thanks muchly!

500g plain flour
5 teaspoons baking powder
50g butter
50g trex / lard
2 handfuls of raisins or sultanas
300ml skimmed milk
1 large egg, beaten, for the top of the scone

  1. Preheat the oven to 220c / gas mark 7
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, butter and trex in a food processor and blitz until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. (If you prefer, you can add the ingredients above into a bowl and rub together with your hands.) 
  3. Pour the crumbs into a mixing bowl and add in the raisins. Stir to combine evenly. 
  4. Add the milk to the dry ingredients and stir with a knife until it forms a rough dough. 
  5. Tip out onto your work surface and knead lightly to bring together. 
  6. Roll out to around 3cm together. 
  7. Dip your scone cutter into some flour, then cut out your scones. Bring the mixture back together and knead slightly, re-roll and cut out as before. The mix should make around 12 scones. 
  8. Place the scones onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. 
  9. Brush the tops with beaten egg and bake for around 10 minutes, or until risen and golden. 
  10. Eat and Enjoy!!
