INGREDIENTS

  • 400g reduced fat yoghurt
  • 30g salt reduced butter
  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup raisins, chopped and soaked in ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk, extra
  • ¼ teaspoon finely grated orange rind
  • orange segments, for serving

METHOD

  1. Rub butter into combined flour and sugar or pulse in a food processor until the mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  2. Place into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and add the buttermilk and drained raisins. Stir the mixture with the blade of a butter knife until just combined.
  3. Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Pat out to a 3 cm thickness and using a floured cutter, cut out the scones and place onto a lined oven tray.
  4. Brush scones with the extra milk and bake at 200°C for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Place yoghurt into a paper towel lined sieve and allow to strain in the refrigerator, covered for 30 minutes. Stir orange rind through yoghurt and serve on scones with orange segments.
