This is a recipe I use regularly for fruit scones as it never fails for me.
150 g dried fruit soaked in tea/orange juice/booze
450g self raising flour
(2tsp baking powder per 150g plain flour)
150 g cold butter
2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
4 tsp milk
2 tsp sugar Pre heat the oven to 200 C
Mix together flour, butter, baking powder and salt in the food processor until it resembles crumbles.
Beat the eggs and milk together and add to a well in the middle of the flour.
Mix well until it resembles a dough adding a little flour if its too sticky.
Then roll out thick and using a cutter (or an upside down glass as I have done in the past) cut out your scones and place on a baking sheet.
Bruch the top with a little milk and sprinkle the sugar on the top, this gives a nice golden crispness to the top that I quite lie. You can drop this last bit - Its entirely up to you !!.
Bake for about 12-15 mins depending on your oven
