  • Straight from the current series of The Hairy Bakers, here’s the recipe for Dave Myers’ and Simon King’s maple syrup, walnut and buttermilk wholemeal scones


    • 300g self-raising flour
    • 100g oatmeal (porridge)
    • 100g wholemeal flour
    • 50g caster sugar
    • 1 dessert spoon of baking powder
    • 1/2tsp salt
    • 160g unsalted butter (warmed)
    • 100g broken walnuts
    • 125ml buttermilk
    • 150ml maple syrup


    • Blend together the self raising flour, the oatmeal, the wholemeal flour, caster sugar

    • Add the baking powder and the salt.

    • Rub through the butter until it goes into crumbs.

    • Fold in the walnuts.

    • Mix in the buttermilk with the maple syrup, then stir in this mixture to the dry goods to make a dough.

    • Press out onto a table about 3 cm thick, using a pastry cutter stamp out your scones. This mix will make a dozen good sized ones.

    • Place onto a greased baking tray.

    • Bake in a hot oven, around 200°C, for around 10 minutes.

    • These scones will rise like a space shuttle, and are wonderful dripping with butter and lemon curd whilst still warm.
