Method:

Hot Cross Scones

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • Combine the flour, castor sugar, salt, raisins and spices in a large mixing bowl.

  • In a saucepan, melt the butter over a medium heat and add the vanilla, buttermilk and eggs, while whisking, until the mixture is smooth and combined. Remove from the heat.

  • Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well until a soft dough forms.

  • Turn out the dough onto a flour-dusted working surface and dust with some more flour.

  • Knead lightly for one minute or until dough is smooth.

  • Give the dough a final dust of flour and cut out with a round cookie cutter.

  • Place the scones on a greased baking tray to prepare for icing and baking.

Icing

  • In a small mixing bowl, add the ingredients for the icing and mix well, then add to a small piping bag.

  • TIP: If you don’t own a piping bag, spoon the icing into a sealable plastic bag and cut the tip off the bottom corner to make a 5 mm opening.

  • Pipe the icing into a cross on the top of each scone.

  • Place in the oven and bake for 25 -30 minutes or until golden brown and well-risen.

Pork Sausages

  • In a frying pan over a moderate heat, fry the sausages for approximately ten minutes.

  • Cover the sausages with water and cook until all the water has evaporated.

  • Add the olive oil to the pan and fry the sausages until golden.

Serve

  • Serve the pork sausages and hot cross scones with butter, jam, cheese and fresh seasonal fruit.
