Orange and Banana Scones – Recipe

I’ve just had a lazy afternoon, a very English afternoon. I had tea and Scones, I made this earlier on today and just had to have a taste as soon as they had cooled down. I found the recipe in my Afternoon Tea cook book. They are very yummy and would be perfect for a little get together with the girls. I wanted to share the recipe with you so, here’s how you make it:

You will need (makes approx. 12):

  • Sunflower Oil (for oiling)
  • 150g White self raising flour
  • 150g Light brown self raising flour
  • 1tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 75g Unsalted butter (diced and chilled)
  • 50g Demerara sugar
  • 150ml Milk
  • 1 Ripe banana (mashed)
  • Finely grated rind of 1 orange
  1. Pre-heat your oven to Gas mark 6/200 C/ 400 F
  2. Mix the flours, baking powder, cinnamon together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the butter and rub between your finger tips until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. Mix in the sugar then make a little well in the middle of the mixture.
  5. Inside the well, pour in your milk, your orange rind and your mashed up banana.
  6. Mix the ingredients into a soft dough, I found at this stage I needed to add more white flour in to make it into more a doughy mixture.
  7. Roll out the dough to about 2cm thick or thicker if you would prefer.
  8. Use a cutter or the end of a glass (I used a glass) to cut out circles and place on your baking tray which is lined with greaseproof paper.
  9. Continue the sequence until you have used all your dough, make sure to leave a small space between the scones as they will rise and might mush together.
  10. Brush over the scones with some milk and place in the oven.
  11. Leave them in for 8-10 minutes, they should be slightly hard on top.
  12. Leave the scones to cool down for about 5-10 minutes.

Enjoy them with some whipped cream and strawberry jam! Also add a cup of tea to make it a very English afternoon, aha.

These are very easy to make and very tasty. I hope you like them as much as I did!

      Haha I'm not a fan of bananas but I like the flavour, its so lovely, add more orange or half a banana if you want it less rich 🙂
