Greek Yogurt Date Scones

I usually have a craving for a croissant or scone first thing in the morning with my cup of coffee. Fortunately it takes only a few minutes to whip up. (The scones NOT the croissant - I ain't making that!).

There are so many different recipes out there. Lemonade scones, soda water scones, scones with buttermilk…you name it! Everyone has their own tried and true recipe.

I only decided to add Greek yogurt because it had been sitting in the fridge for the last few days. The final results were moist, fluffy, delicious scones. The kids loved them!

I simply used plain leftover plain Greek Yogurt such as this.

I have got to say, they were one of the best batch of scones I’ve made! Of course you don't have to put dates in them. I just find they are a great natural sweetener, so no jam required on my scones...well, except for my husband's.

They are definitely worth sharing with you!

Instructions
  1. Line a tray with baking paper. Turn oven to 220C/200C fan-forced.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the flours, baking powder, sugar, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  3. Add cold chopped butter. Rub in with fingertips until it resembles chunky breadcrumbs. Do so briefly or the butter will melt.
  4. Toss in the chopped dates.
  5. Add yoghurt and the milk. Stir with a wooden spoon until dough just comes together.
  6. Turn dough onto lightly floured table or board.
  7. Knead and turn for 30 seconds until the dough looks smoother and a little sticky.
  8. Work the dough to around 3-4 cm thick. Get a wet knife & cut out triangular pieces or use a round cutter.
  9. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Recipe Notes

I added 1 cup of wholemeal flour as a healthier option, but you can stick with white. When working the dough mixture, if you find it too dry, add some milk. Too wet, simply add a little extra flour.
