- Preheat oven to 210°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Using your fingertips, rub Flora pro-activ* into flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and dates. Using a round-bladed knife, stir in the milk and mix until the mixture forms a dough.
- Toss mixture onto a lightly floured board and knead lightly. Roll to 15mm thickness and cut into rounds with a scone cutter. Place scones close together on prepared baking slide and brush with extra milk.
- Bake for 15 minutes or until the scones sound hollow when tapped. Spread with extra Flora pro-activ* to serve.
