Spotty scones (sultana scones)

Most kids love cooking so here is a super simple scone recipe which the kids really enjoyed making (anything you can dip your hands in is usually a winner here)

Add flour, dextrose (or caster sugar), salt and butter to a big bowl and mix using your hands until it goes all crumbly


Add sultanas then add milk and slowly add water while stirring with a knife (we did not use all of the water)


Roll out on a floured bench and cut out rounds with a cookie cutter.

Place on a lined tray and brush with milk.

Bake in the oven for approx 10mins at 200 degrees


Smother in butter and EAT!


Spotty Scones 
(recipe from Cooking With Kids by Susan Davies)
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
1 Tbsp caster sugar (we used dextrose)
Pinch salt
30g butter
1/2 cup sultanas
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water (approx - we didn't use all of it)

1. Preheat oven to 220c. Line a tray with baking paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour with sugar and salt. Rub in butter with finger tips till mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add sultanas.
3. Use a knife to stir through milk and enough water to form a soft dough.
4. Turn dough onto a floured surface and press out to 2cm thickness. Cut into 5cm rounds. Knead scraps together and repeat. Place rounds onto prepared tray, brush with a little milk and bake for 12-15mins till scones are golden. Cool on a wire rack.
