Honey Scones

Great with tea!

  • 2 level teaspoons baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 110g (4 oz) wholemeal flour
  • 3 tblsp butter
  • 1 heaped tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 generous tablespoon honey

  1. Sift the white flour, baking powder and salt together, then add the wholemeal flour and rub in the butter.
  2. Stir in the sugar. Add the honey to the milk and stir until dissolved, then add most of the mixture to the flour and butter mixture, and mix to make a soft dough, reserving the rest for a glaze.
  3. Shape the dough into a round about 20 or 22cm (8 or 9in) across and put onto a greased baking sheet.
  4. Cut across the top four times to mark 8 wedge-like portions or farls and bake at 200°C/400°F/gas mark 6 for 20 minutes.
  5. Take out to brush with glaze, then put back and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes.
