normal sieving and mixing rules apply

big pinch of saffron in 1/3c cup milk should soak for several hours until needed

3 cups fine wholemeal flour
1/2 cup vanilla unrefined sugar ,
1/2 ts salt
1 t/s baking powder

sieve into bowl

2/3 cup good butter cut into bits then rubbed into the flour

1/2 cup sultanas rubbed into the mix

one egg ,mix,add saffron milk ,mix,add more milk via the saffron cup (waste not etc ),mix until a sticky dough

use fine white self raising to assist the knock up and gentle roll to without too much kneeding

cut into scones

bake moderate hot until done (190 c for 15 mins is a rough guide )

Do you have a bone-shaped scone cutter, or did you shape them by hand ?
