Super Easy Yummy Scones!

I've tried this recipe from Jamie Oliver's book Ministry of Food several times and the scones always came out excellent! Its also pretty straight forward recipe :)

*Makes 10 scones

-120g mixture of sour cherries and/or raisins
-orange juice, for soaking
-450g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for dusting
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-120g butter
-pinch of salt
-2 large eggs
-5 tablespoons milk, plus a little extra for brushing

*To make your dough

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Soak the cherries and raisins in a little bowl with just enough orange juice to cover them. While they're soaking, you can either pulse the flower, baking powder and butter in a food processor just until the mixture starts to look like breadcrumbs (don't be tempted to over-pulse) or you can rub them together by hand (that is what I do). Transfer to a mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. In another bowl, beat the eggs and milk with a good pinch of salt. Then pour your beaten eggs, milk, cherries and raised into the well in the flour mixture and stir well, adding a splash more milk if necessary, until you have a soft, dry dough.

After just roll out the dough with a rolling pin and cut 2cm thick or as you like it best :) . Dip the pastry brush into some milk and brush the top of each scone. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes until risen and brown.
