A bit like mashed potato, but better! These quick sweet potato scones take just minutes to make and taste great with butter and a slice of cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 350g (12oz) self-raising flour, sieved
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 15g (1/2oz) light buttery spread
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped chives
  • 250ml (9fl oz) semi-skimmed milk drink

Method

  • Place potato on baking tray, pierce with a fork and bake at 190C, 375F, gas 5 for 45 minutes or until tender. Cool to room temperature.

  • Peel and mash potato.

  • Place flour and sugar into a bowl and rub in the light buttery spread.

  • Stir in chives, potato and enough semi-skimmed milk drink to mix to a soft dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth.

  • Roll lightly to 2cm thick and cut into 5cm (2 inch) rounds. Place on greased baking tray and brush tops with a little semi-skimmed milk drink.

  • Bake in hot oven at 210C, 425F, gas 7 for 15 minutes or until cooked.
