    Did you know you can make scones with yoghurt instead of sour cream? Use a good quality yoghurt with bits of fruit in it.

    Serves: 6 

    • 1 3/4 cups (200g) plain flour
    • 4 teaspoons baking powder
    • 60g butter
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) strawberry yoghurt
    • 2 tablespoons milk, or as needed

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.
    2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles a crumbly texture. Add the yoghurt all at once and mix briefly to form a soft dough.
    3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 2cm in thickness.
    4. Dip a scone cutter or round biscuit cutter into some flour, and stamp out 12 scones. (You may have to re-roll the dough to get 12.)
    5. Place scones 4 cm apart onto baking sheets. Brush tops with milk.
    6. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until risen and golden brown. Best served freshly baked with butter.
    7. .
