Bran Scones


3 cups whole meal self-rising flour, sifted
1 cup bran
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 tablespoons honey
1 to 1-1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour, bran, brown sugar, dates and spice. In a small saucepan combine the butter, honey and milk. Heat until the butter is melted; pour into the dry ingredients. Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Roll the dough to about ½-inch thick. Cut out the scones using a 2-½-inch round cutter. Place the scones on a baking sheet and brush with milk. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown.
