This healthy variation on plain scones is made by simply replacing some of the plain white flour with wholemeal flour.

Ingredients

1 ½  cups plain baking flour
1 ½  cups wholemeal flour
4 level teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
50 gms butter
1 ½ cups milk 

Method

  1.  Sift plain flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl
  2. Stir in the wholemeal flour
  3. Using your fingers rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs
  4. Add milk and mix to a soft dough with a knife
  5. Sprinkle a little flour on to an oven baking tray
  6. Place the scone dough on the tray and lightly knead it with your fingers
  7. Flatten the dough into an oblong shape 4-5 cm high
  8. Cut into 10-12 even-sized pieces.
  9. Spread the pieces out so there is about 1 cm between each scone on the tray.
  10. Bake at 220°C for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
