    Raspberry & coconut scones

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + cooling
    • Cooking time: 12-14 minutes

    Makes: 9


    250g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
    ¼ tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    50g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
    50g butter, chilled and diced
    50g desiccated coconut, plus extra for sprinkling
    100ml buttermilk, plus extra for brushing
    About 50ml milk
    75g raspberries


    1 Preheat oven to 220ºC, gas mark 7, lightly flour a baking tray. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar into a bowl and rub in the butter until resembling readcrumbs. Stir in the coconut.

    2 Mix the buttermilk and milk into the flour to form a soft dough, adding a little extra milk if it seems dry. Divide the dough in half and press out slightly on a floured surface. Sandwich the raspberries between the 2 pieces.
