Orange cranberry scones

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!

    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 🙂

      These could be converted, Ingrid. I have played around with paleo in the past. Let me know if you do. 🙂
