    Put flours, caster sugar and baking powder in a large bowl, whisk all together. If butter is soft, rub in, or if hard, grate in, whisk together with a knife.
    Mix in Currants. Add the liquid, using the knife to mix well together.
    Tip this mixture onto floured bench and pat into, turn this over in double and pat out or roll into a rectangle and roll dough into about 15 mm thick. Cut into about 12 pieces. And put onto Baking Paper lined baking tray.

    Cheese and Corn Scones:

    2 large sweetcorn
    cobs (or 250g sweetcorn kernels from a can, drained weight)
    350g self-raising flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp English mustard powder
    ¼ tsp ground cayenne or paprika
    , plus extra for sprinkling
    few thyme
    sprigs, leaves picked
    50g cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
    175g cheddar
    , grated
    175ml semi-skimmed milk
    , plus extra for brushing
    juice ½ lemon
    Method

    Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. Hold a corn cob at a right angle to the chopping board, then run a sharp knife down the length of the cob, as close to the core as you can get, slicing away the rows of corn. Boil the kernels for 4 mins or until just tender, then drain well.
    Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Mix the flour, baking powder, mustard, cayenne, 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp thyme leaves in a large bowl, then rub in the butter until the mix looks like fine crumbs. Tip in most of the cheese and all of the corn. Mix the milk with the lemon juice, then stir into the bowl to make a slightly sticky dough. Don’t over-work the dough.
    Tip the dough onto the floured work surface, knead 2-3 times to smooth a little, then divide into 10 balls. Shape each roughly with your hands and put onto a floured baking sheet. Brush each with a little milk, then scatter with a little cheese, cayenne and a few thyme leaves. Bake for 10-12 mins or until the scones are risen, golden and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Cool on a rack.

    Divine Date scones
    The dates are boiled then sandwiched between the scone dough.
    Preheat the oven to 200degC. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
    2 cups pitted dates, orange juice if you have some for added flavour. Place the dates and orange juice if using, in a small saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes. Cool.
    3 cups flour 1 Tbsp baking powder Pinch salt 3/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar 100g butter, chopped. 1 to 1 1/4 cups milk, 1 egg, lightly beaten, tablespoon extra brown sugar.
    Place the dry ingredients, except the extra brown sugar in a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the butter in batches, processing until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs..Place in a bowl and add enough milk to form a soft but not too sticky dough. On a lightly floured bench, pat the dough into a rectangle. Brush with beaten egg then cut in half.
    Spread the cooled date mixture on one half. Flip the other half over the top egg-wash side down to make a sandwich. Cut into about nine pieces. Place on the prepared oven tray. Brush with egg and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked.

    Feijoa and Ginger Scones ( an Alison Holst recipe):
    2 cups self raising flour
    ¾ cup lemonade
    ½ cup cream
    1 cup chopped peeled feijoas
    ¼ cup finely sliced crystallised ginger
    ¼ cup sugar
    Method
    Set the rack above the centre of the oven. Preheat the oven to 220ºC. Grease a baking tray or line it with baking paper.
    Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Put the lemonade, cream and feijoas into the well and use a knife to mix together, making a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead very lightly. Pat into a 18-20cm round and place on the prepared tray. Brush with milk to glaze and scatter over the ginger and sugar. Use a sharp cook’s knife to divide the scone into 8 even wedges without cutting all the way through.
    Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until cooked. Transfer to a clean tea towel-covered cake rack to cool. Serve warm with butter.
