First heat your oven to 180c (or the equivalent for your oven).
Ingredients 225g self raising flour
50g caster sugar
130 to 140ml milk
1 teaspoon of baking powder
50g of fruit (This can be either sultanas, cherries, mixed fruit, raisins, chopped apricots, chopped prunes, etc)
2 teaspoons of culinary lavender
1 teaspoon of culinary lavender oil.
Place the flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl, rub in the butter 'til it resembles breadcrumbs.
Mix in the fruit and the sugar, the lavender flowers and the lavender.
Make a hollow in the middle of the mixture, then place the milk in the hollow.
Stir the mixture well, turning it into a soft dough.
Then place the lump of dough onto a lightly floured board.
Knead until it is nice and smooth. Flatten it out into a round shape (use your hands or you can roll it out) until it is about 1.5cm thick. Then use a biscuit cutter to make the rounds.
Place the rounds onto a greased baking tray and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until they are a golden colour.
Remove from the oven and serve hot with butter straight from the fridge.
You can add jam, honey or marmalade should you wish.
