Enjoy your delicious and fluffy Sultana scones!

Here are a few tips for making the perfect Sultana scone:

  • Use cold butter: Cold butter is essential for creating a light and fluffy texture. Cut the butter into small cubes and keep it in the refrigerator until you need it.
  • Don’t overwork the dough: Overworking the dough can lead to tough and dense scones. Mix the ingredients gently until a soft dough forms and then stop.
  • Use self-raising flour: Self-raising flour contains baking powder, which helps the scones to rise. If you don’t have self-raising flour, you can make your own by mixing together 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • Brush with egg wash: Brushing the tops of the scones with beaten egg before baking gives them a golden and glossy finish.
  • Use a light hand when cutting the scones: Gently press down on the cookie cutter or glass to cut out the scones, and don’t twist it. Twisting the cookie cutter can seal the edges of the scones and prevent them from rising.
  • Serve fresh: Scones are best eaten fresh on the day they are made. If you have leftovers, you can store scones in an airtight container for up to 2 days and reheat them in the oven before serving.
