Recipe: Superfood Scones

Superfood Scones


  • 4 cups self-rising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g butter
  • 30g caster sugar
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 free-range egg, to glaze (alternatively use a little milk)
  • 1 tsp blue spirulina (optional)
  • 1 tsp blue matcha  (optional)
  • 1 tsp pink pitaya (optional)
  • Silicone moulds, to shape


STEP 1: Heat the oven to 220C.

STEP 2: Lightly grease a baking sheet or use baking tray.

STEP 3: Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.

STEP 4: Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough. Separate the dough into three parts.

STEP 5: Prepare three small dishes for your superfood powders – one for the pink pitaya, one for blue spirulina and one for blue matcha. Add a drop of milk to each dish to dissolve the powders then add to dough, mixing it well until the colours are mixed evenly. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly.

STEP 6: Place the dough in silicone moulds or cut your dough to whatever shape you want and place on baking sheet/tray.

STEP 7: Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg or milk.

STEP 8: Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen.

STEP 9: Cool on a wire rack and serve either plain or with butter, jam and clotted cream.
