Thingamidoodah… Yoghurt scones!

After so many tried recipes failing me, I decided it was time to try something different.

Belleau Kitchen Random Recipes Challenge

I’ve had this book for a long time but I can’t remember ever making anything from it. So, when I randomly picked it as part of Belleau Kitchen Random Recipes Challenge, I was really glad to give it a try. But I must admit to cheating a little… You see, my blog is about teatime treats so I couldn’t post a recipe for Chinese fish stew! Hence, I had to limit myself to the sections that interested me. That’s how I came across this delicious recipe.

yoghurt scones

Adapted from the book Low Fat Low Cholesterol Cookbook, by Christine France

250g (2 cups) self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
30g (2 tbsp) margarine
15g (2 tbsp) icing sugar
50g (⅓ cup) sultanas
170g plain yoghurt
30-40ml (2-3 tbsp) skimmed milk

Isn't it tempting?

Low fat and low cholesterol. Just until you smother it with butter! 😉

Preheat oven to 160oC and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Sift together flour and baking powder and rub in the margarine. Add sugar and sultanas. Pour yoghurt in and combine. Then add the milk, a little at a time, if necessary.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 2cm thick. Cut out circles about 6cm in diameter and arrange them on the tray 2cm apart. Brush the tops with a little milk and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
