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.
- 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!
