Hot Cross Scones Have Landed in Time for Easter!

Limited Time Only

Hop into your local Muffin Break for a special and limited time treat – freshly baked Hot Cross Scones! Or bake and enjoy them at home. You can find the recipe below.


Scone Mix

2 ½ cups self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
½  tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp caster sugar
1 tbsp finely grated orange rind
80g butter, softened
1 cup sultanas
2/3 cup buttermilk

For Crosses
1/3 cup plain flour
1/4 cup water

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Grease a baking tray with oil or line with grease proof paper.
  2. Place flour, baking powder, cinnamon, caster sugar and grated orange rind into a large bowl. Add butter, then rub with your fingertips until the mix looks like fine crumbs.
  3. Make a well in the dry mix, then add sultanas, buttermilk and combine it quickly with a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until evenly incorporated and the mixture begins to hold together.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll dough out to about 1.5cm thick.
  5. Use a 5cm-diameter pastry cutter dipped in flour to cut 12 scones from the dough. Place scones on the baking tray about 5mm apart.
  6. Make the crosses. Whisk flour and water until smooth in a small bowl and transfer cross paste into a piping bag or zip lock bag. Cut a 1 cm opening at the tip of the piping bag. Pipe the paste to make a cross on top of scones.
  7. Bake for 20 mins until risen and golden on the top. Eat just warm or cold.

Eat Fresh within 4 hrs (room temperature) or refrigerate (below 5°C) up to 1 day in a sealed container.  This product contains the allergens: Wheat, Milk
