2 cups self-raising flour
1 cup wholemeal flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, plus 1 Tbs - extra
3/4 cup dates, roughly chopped
Grated zest of one lemon
70g butter, cubed
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup lemonade
2 Tbs cream
1 Preheat oven to 220C. Put the flours, salt and sugar into a large mixing bowl.
2 Add the dates, lemon zest and then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
3 Whisk together the egg, milk, lemonade and cream. Gently mix enough of the wet mixture into the dry until it holds together.
4 Press gently onto a floured surface. Cut into rounds and place on a greased oven tray. Brush with the remaining egg/milk wash. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
