Orange and Sultana Scones


At the top of my fathers "to do" list on every family holiday was cream tea, which for him consisted of a cup of real coffee accompanied by a thickly buttered scone, topped with strawberry jam and piled high with thick cream, preferably clotted cream!

Thankfully these were only rare holiday treats!

The other day I opened a carton of Graces coconut milk and the contents were so thick that I just spooned it out and thought "wow wouldn't this be perfect as a topping for scones!" So a recipe formed in my head.

I've researched the scone recipe and found that the more fat used the more melt in the mouth a scone is. However, there is literally a breaking point. Too much fat and the scone will simply crumble apart. That said scones are not that difficult to make and make the whole house smell great!

I decided to give these scones a little twist away from tradition. I love sultanas and orange and they go together so well.

So I'm sharing my sultana and orange scone recipe, served spread with marmalade from whom else but St Dalfour and topped with a little scoop of thick coconut cream. If you don't have that you could try a little bit of plain dairy free cream cheese.
