Sultana Scones - Sweetened with Canderel® Sweetely


Sultana Scones

1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/Gas 5.

2. Add the flour, baking powder and canderel to a bowl and stir so it all combines.

3. Rub the low fat spread into the flour, using your fingertips, until it resembles breadcrumbs then stir in the sultanas then add the buttermilk and stir to combine using a round ended knife then bring it together with your hands. If it is too dry and crumbly, add a sprinkling of milk.

4. Turn it out onto a lightly floured board and roll it out to about 1.2 cm½ inch thick then cut out rounds using a 6cm/21/2 inch cutter and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush each one with a little milk and put in the oven to bake for about 10-15 minutes until golden and risen. Leave to cool on a wire rack then sandwich together with low fat crème fraiche or low fat cream and low sugar strawberry jam.

Tip: The key to scone making is not to handle the dough too much – treat it as you would pastry.

Strawberry Conserve

1. Add the strawberries to a preserving pan or a large wide pan then sprinkle over the Canderel®, on a low heat, stir for a couple of minutes until the Canderel® has dissolved.

2. Stir in the lemon juice raise the heat and bubble for about 10-15 minutes until the strawberries have broken down and the mixture has thickened. Spoon into a sterilised jar, then seal.

Tip: Keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks
