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!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

  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 🙂
