Quick & Easy Date Scones

mmmmmmmmmmmm, date scones!
These ones are so simple to make & work out so light & fluffy.

You'll need:

3 cups self-raising flour
200ml leomonade
200ml coconut cream
250g dates (fresh of dried- i prefer fresh)

(you can also substitute other dried fruits if you'd rather, or just make them plain)

Mix flour, lemonade & cream in a bowl. Stir gently. Chop dates into small pieces & remove pips.
Add to the bowl.
Stir gently until all combined.
Mixture will be slightly sticky but still touchable.

Turn mixture onto a floured board, or a piece of baking paper. Press down lightly with your hands til mixture is about 1 inch thick.

Using a scone cutter, or the top of a cup, cut out scones & place on a piece of baking paper.

Bake for 10-12 mins at 200C until lightly golden brown.

Serve with jam or by itself :-)
