Home Baked Fruit Scones

Enjoy afternoon tea at home with these homemade fruit scones made with yoghurt. If sultanas aren't available, swap for any type of dried fruit. Serve with jam and butter, or cream.


Makes 12 scones

  • 300g self-raising flour

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • Pinch of salt

  • 75g butter

  • 75g caster sugar

  • 75g sultanas

  • 2 tbsps natural yoghurt

  • Milk to mix (around 300ml)


  1. Preheat a Miele Oven on the Fan Plus function at 180°C. Place the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl and stir together. Rub in the butter.

  2. Add the sugar, sultanas and yoghurt and then enough milk to bind the mixture into a light, sticky dough. Handle the mixture as little as possible but bring the dough together and transfer on to a lightly floured work surface.

  3. Gently pat out the dough to approximately 2.5cm thick. Cut out the scones using a 5cm diameter cutter and place on a lightly floured baking tray.

  4. Place the scones in a Miele Oven and bake for 20 minutes until well risen and lightly golden. Once baked, transfer to a wire rack.

  5. Serve the scones while still slightly warm with jam and butter, or cream.
