  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 30 gram butter
  • 3 teaspoon ground ginger

Method

Blueberry ginger scones
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced). Grease deep 19cm-square cake pan.
  • 2
    Sift flour and sugar into large bowl; rub in butter with fingertips. Stir in ginger and blueberries.
  • 3
    Make well in centre of flour mixture; add milk and almost all of the water. Using a knife, "cut" the milk and water through the flour mixture to mix to a soft, sticky dough. Knead dough on floured surface until smooth.

    Press dough out to a 2cm thickness. Dip 4.5cm cutter into flour; cut as many rounds as you can from the piece of dough. Place scones side by side, just touching, in pan. Gently knead scraps of dough together; repeat pressing and cutting of dough. Place in same pan. Brush tops with a little extra milk.

    Bake scones about 15 minutes or until browned and scones sound hollow when tapped firmly on the top with fingers.
