Chocolate, Apricot and Sultana Scones: Recipe by Katy Runacres

So this combination does seem a little odd I know! We fancied making scones but realised we had no raisins to put in them and no round cutters! Therefore they are raisinless and heart – shaped! Additionally, I am an avid chocolate lover often getting told off for adding chocolate to everything – To keep up the tradition I did it here too!

I added some cocoa powder to the mixture and also chopped up some dried apricots and sultanas to make the mix a little more interesting. Although they may look a little odd they taste brilliant – we had our warm with a thick spread of Nutella on!

Ingredients (makes about 12-15):

  • 300g plain flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder (or can just use self raising)
  • 1 cup of cut up dried apricots
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 50g butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • approximately 120ml milk


  1. Heat oven to 220c.
  2. Mix flour and butter together. then add other ingredients (apart from milk) and mix well.
  3. Add the milk a little at a time and mix in.
  4. Flour a clean surface and roll out mixture to approximately 1 cm thick. Cut out and continue until all the dough is used up.
  5. Place on baking tray and bake for 18 minutes and remove from oven.
  6. Cut open and eat with copious amounts of Nutella or the more traditional clotted cream and jam!
