Date, brown sugar and lemon scones
( SERVES 12 )
- Preheat oven to 220C. Put the flours, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
- Add the dates, lemon zest and then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
- Whisk together the egg, milk, lemonade and cream. Gently mix enough of the wet mixture into the dry until it holds together.
- Press gently onto a floured surface. Cut into rounds and place on a greased oven tray. Brush with the remaining egg/milk wash. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
