Rolled Cinnamon Scone Bread with Plums

I love this bread, with its simplicity bread making for everyone in a few minutes. Can be made with apples, plums or seasonal fruit.

Serves 6-7


450g/1lb plain flour and 2 tsp baking powder or ready made scone mix.

250ml/1/2 pt milk – full cream or low fat milk or buttermilk


2 chopped apples or plums

1 tsp. Cinnamon powder

25 gms (1 oz) brown sugar

50 gms. Sultanas

To finish dust with icing sugar.


Grease well a round 18-20cm/7-8 inch tin and dust lightly with caster sugar.

Sieve the flour into a large bowl and add the baking powder if necessary, add milk and mix to a firm dough, pour half the mixture into the tin.


Mix together either 2 chopped plums or apples, 1 tsp. Cinnamon powder, 25gms. Brown sugar, 50 gms. sultanas, and spread half over the dough in the tin, pour the remainer of the scone dough on top and finally sprinkle with the remainder of the fruit mixture.

Bake at 200 degrees F, Gas mark 6 for 20 – 25 mins. Serve hot buttered if you like and dust with icing sugar.
