Orange cranberry scones

baking, cranberry, orange, scones, thermomix, Uncategorized

Perfect for the holiday season- cranberries and orange, a perfect match.

I mixed my ingredients in a Thermomix on turbo pulse, but you can make these as you normally make scones, by hand, or in a stand mixer.

You'll need

  • 400g self raising flour
  • 15g baking powder
  • 150g butter
  • 80g golden caster sugar
  • 150g buttermilk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 100g dried cranberries (if you think ahead you could soak these for 30 minutes in orange juice- if you do reduce the amount of milk you use)
  • Grated rind of an orange

Use cold butter to mix with the flour until breadcrumb consistency. Mix in all other ingredients. Adding dried cranberries last.

Shape as required- small (2″/5cm) scones are great – you can go back for more!

Bake for about 10- 15 minutes In roasting aga oven, 230°C/440°F ( depending on size) brush with egg wash and sprinkle with Demerara sugar if liked.

Serve with orange curd. If you have a Thermomix this can be whisked up in 5 minutes. Adjust lemon curd recipe by substituting orange rind.

These are totally wonderful!

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

  1. Oh my gosh, these sound so delicious. I wonder how I might convert some of the ingredients to meet my Paleo restricted diet. Hmm, perfect for me to play around with on a rainy day along the Texas Gulf Coast 🙂


i'd love to hear from you...
