Sesame Seed Wholegrain Scones



  • 250grams self raising flour
  • 250grams of wholegrain flour
  • 100grams of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons of honey (optional for a sweeter scone that can enjoyed with no additional jam!)
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds and a few to sprinkle on top
  • 2 eggs, beaten (keep a little to wash scones before putting in oven)
  • Enough buttermilk to bring to a dough


Preheat over to 190 degrees celcisus. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Rub in butter until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add seeds and mix well. Add beaten egg, honey (if desired) and enough buttermilk to bring it to a dough. Place ball of dough on a floured board and using a round biscuit cutter, cut into small circular shapes about 1 ½ inches thick. Wash with a little beaten egg and sprinkle a few seeds on top and place scones on baking paper on a baking tray. Bake at 190 degrees Celcius for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

Makes 12-16 scones
