Classic Date Scone Recipe

Eating Baking always cheers me up and I knew exactly what I wanted to make today.  I have only recently become a fan of dates, they seem to be Abby’s favourite scone variety so whenever we have morning tea she always comes equipped with some date scones.

Dates are yummy, are grown on palm trees and are a source of vitamin C – now you know!

The staple Edmond’s recipe is a winner and it’s what Ethan and I used today to whip up these guys; he did an awesome job of chopping all the dates up for me – that boy loves to eat cook as much as his parents do!

Classic Date Scone Recipe

* 3 cup flour
* 6 tsp Baking Powder
* 1/4 tsp Salt,
* 75g Butter
* 1 -1.5 cups Milk

For Date scones add 3/4 cup chopped dates, 1 tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon to flour

Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Add milk and mix quickly with a knife to a soft dough. Knead a few times. Lightly dust oven tray with flour.  Press scone dough out onto this.  Cut into 12 even sized pieces. Leave a 2 cm space between scones.  Brush tops with milk.  Bake at 220C for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes 12

(209 cal per scone approx.  not bad)

  1. I love scones too, date or plain with jam and cream.

    Years ago my mum taught me to make them, following the ingredients from any recipe but changing the method, and I think it makes them even easier.

    Melt the butter in a pot, turn off the heat, add the milk with a drop of vinegar to sour it, then add the other ingredients as listed. Keep as wet as possible to handle, turn onto a floured surface, cut and cook in a hot oven. Yum and easy!

    Cheers!

  2. Hi,

    Awesome recipe, but i noticed you got a little grammar mistake possibly. Shouldn't "he did an awesome of chopping all the dates up for me" be "he did an awesome job of chopping all the dates up for me" ? Please delete this comment after you read it 😉 Sorry for being fussy. Thanks.
