Saving 14 calories per serving
225g Self-raising flour, sieved
1 tsp baking powder, sieved
75g low fat spread
2tbsp Pure Via Granules
2 eating apples, peeled, cored and cut into small pieces
150g fresh cherries, halved and de-stoned
100ml semi-skimmed milk
YOU WILL NEED A 5CM/2INCH ROUND PLAIN CUTTER
- Preheat the oven to gas 7/210C (190C in a fan oven). Add the flour to a large bowl along with the baking powder and mix. Now add the low fat spread and rub it in with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Now stir through the Pure Via, apple and cherries then begin to pour in the milk slowly and using your hands gather it together to form a dough. You may not need all the milk. Now turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board.
- Roll the dough out so it is about 21/2 cm/1inch thick deep and cut out rounds using the cutter. Place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and put in the oven to cook until risen and golden, about 15 minutes. Remove and place on a wire rack to cool a little. Serve on their own or halved with some sugar free jam and low fat crème fraiche.
Tip: Scones are best eaten on the day of baking and are best if eaten when still just warm.
