Easter Scone

What’s better than combining scone, dried-fruits nuts and chocolate?!



  • 3 Cups Plain Flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 50g cold butter
  • about 1 Cup milk
  • ¾ cup mixed fruits (diced apricots, sultanas / raisins or mixed peal) I also added a handful of chopped almonds
  • ½ cup chocolate chip

White Icing

  • 1/2 of an egg white
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • about 1 cup Icing sugar


1. Heat oven to 200C.

2. Sift and combine flour, sugar, cream of tartar, soda and spice in a large bowl. Grate butter over it and use hands to crumble it until the consistency is like breadcrumbs.


3. Add the milk and quickly mix into a soft dough

4. Gently pat out dough on a floured surface into a rectangle about 35cmx15 cm.

5. Sprinkle over dried fruit and chocolate chips10268288_10153990130085507_1101557629_n

6. Bring long sides together to encase filling and roll up as best as you can into a log.


6. Cut into 10-12 pieces and arrange on a baking tray, in a circle just touching to make a wreath, or in my case I tried a bunny!!10250773_10153990134970507_555764221_n 10250808_10153990131040507_917482390_n

7. Brush with a bit of milk & bake at 200C for 10-15 min or until golden.


Whisk egg white until frothy; add lemon juice and then the icing sugar, until you have a consistency smooth and glossy.

Let the wreath cool a little before icing and decorate with mini chocolate Easter eggs.
