Serves 12 scones


  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 300ml cream
  • 4 cups self-raising flour plus extra for rolling
  • 375ml can ginger ale


  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Sift flour into bowl, add remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Place on floured surface and pat into a round shape about an inch thick.
  • Cut with scone cutter, arrange closely on a baking tray, and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Recipe Notes

Note: Can be frozen or for a smaller quantity, simple have the ingredients.
Hint: When making scones you can add 2 tbs. cornflour and a generous squeeze of lemon juice. The cornflour will make the scones lighter and the lemon juice will keep them fresher for longer.
