Recipe's preparation

    Date Scones
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degC if FF or 200 degC normal.

    Line an oven tray with baking paper

    'Soak' dates in Golden Syrup for a min of an hour.

    Chop dates - Speed 6 / 15 seconds. Set aside. No need to wash bowl.  

    Place flour and butter in TM bowl and Mix 10 seconds / speed 9 - should be bread crumb consistency. 

    Add egg, milk, cream and chopped dates and Mix for 10 seconds / Speed 4 until mixture is combined. 

    Knead Dough mode mixture for 30 seconds.

    Pour dough mixture onto floured surface or use the Thermomat - place a sheet of baking paper on the Thermomat. Lightly pat dough into 2cm thickness - place another sheet of baking paper on top and roll to an even thickness. 

    NOTE: dough will be quite sticky - this is fine.

    Cut into rounds with scone cutter.  Place scones touching each other onto oven tray. Glaze with a little milk.

     Place in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes.

     Cool in a clean tea towel on a wire rack. 

     Serve warm or cool with butter or cream and jam.
