Ingredients

  • 225 g self raising flour
  • pinch salt
  • 55 g butter cubed
  • 30 g caster sugar
  • 150 ml milk I used semi-skimmed
  • 160 g of frozen mixed berries
  • lemon zest zest of half a lemon
  • milk for brushing over the scones

Instructions

  • Mix together the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Rub in the butter gently. It doesn't have to be mixed very fine.
  • Stir in the sugar then the milk to make a soft dough.
  • Knead gently.
  • Add in the frozen mixed berries and lemon zest, and press the fruit into the dough.
  • Form the mixture into a round disc, about two or three centimetres thick. Slice into six triangles by cutting in half and then twice more again, as shown in the image in the post.
  • Transfer the triangles on a lined baking tray. Brush with a little milk.
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.
  • Remove from the oven and try to stop yourself eating them all warm!
