4 ½ cups self raising flour
2 Tbsp sugar
Zest from ½ orange
300g Cinderella Diced Dates
300ml cream
300ml lemonade
Milk for glazing

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (fan bake). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift flour into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar, orange zest and Cinderella Diced Dates. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients. Pour in cream and lemonade and mix together to form a soft dough.
