Recipe: Ginger Yogurt Scones

Enjoy this summery recipe from Rachel’s Organic. The combination of spice with the cooling yoghurt makes for the perfect mix.

  • Recipe: Ginger Yogurt Scones
To Serve 8-12, You'll Need:
    • 180g Rachel’s Greek Style Ginger Yogurt
    • 65g caster sugar
    • 2 tbsp milk, extra for brushing
    • 350g plain flour, extra for rolling out
    • 1½ tsp baking powder
    • 80g Rachel’s unsalted butter
    • 1 tsp ginger powder
To Serve:
    • Cherry jam
    • Whipping cream
    • Rachel’s Low Fat Cherry Yogurt
    • Pre-heat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

    • Line a baking tray with parchment paper or greaseproof paper.

    • Put the yogurt, milk and sugar in a pan and warm until hand-hot, alternatively heat in a small bowl on low power for 40 seconds in the microwave. The sugar should melt into the yogurt and milk.

    • Place the flour, baking powder and butter into a mixing bowl and rub the butter into the flour to make a breadcrumb texture.

    • Using a wooden spoon add the warmed yogurt mix and stir well to form a dough.

    • Dust the worktop with some flour and bring the dough together. Gently roll out the dough to about 3cm thick and with a round 7cm cutter push out the scones.

    • Place the scones on the prepared tray with a good distance between them. Re-shape the dough and cut again.

    • Brush each scone with a little milk and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.

    • Cool on a wire rack and sandwich with jam.
