3 cups Whole meal self-rising flour -- -sifted
1 cup Bran
2 tablespoons Brown sugar -- packed
1/2 cup Chopped dates
1 teaspoon Mixed spice
1/4 cup Butter or margarine
2 tablespoons Honey
1 cup Milk -- to 1 1/2 cups
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, bran, brown
sugar, dates and spice. In a small saucepan combine the butter, honey and milk.
Heat until the butter is melted; pour into the dry ingredients. Turn onto a
floured surface and knead lightly. Roll the dough to about 1/2-inch thick. Cut
out the scones using a 2 1/2-inch round cutter. Place the scones on a baking
sheet and brush with milk. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown.
