  • 3 and 1/2 cups self raising flour, sifted
  • 60 g cold butter, chopped
  • 1 and 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple, 1cm ×1cm cubes

Vanilla Custard

  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup corn flour
  • 60 g butter, chopped roughly


For the scones..

  • Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius (200°C fan forced)
  • Sprinkle some flour (2 teaspoons)over a cookie tray and set aside
  • In a mixing bowl add in the flour and butter and use fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Make a well in the center and add in the milk, juice and pineapple; use a long flat blade knife or spatula to mix together until just combined.
  • Turn the mixture onto a clean, lightly floured bench and shape into a 2cm thick disc.
  • Use round scone or cookie cutter to cut circles. Place on the prepared cookie tray. Repeat with the remaining dough until all the dough is used up.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned on the top and cooked through.
  • Remove from oven and cool

Vanilla Custard

  • Place milk in a heavy saucepan; slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Scrape off the seeds with the blade of a sharp knife. Add the seeds into the milk. Heat the milk mixture over medium heat until almost boiling.
  • Meanwhile place the egg yolks in a separate heatproof bowl, add in the sugar and corn flour; whisk until mixture is thick, smooth and pale.
  • Remove saucepan with milk mixture from heat and slowly pour the milk mixture into the egg mixture while whisking very well; working quickly pour the combined egg and milk mixture back into the saucepan and place it back onto the heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils and thickens.
  • Remove from heat, keep stirring to make sure the mixture doesn’t scramble.
  • Add in the butter and stir until butter is all melted and mixed.
  • Pour custard into a heatproof bowl and place cling wrap over its surface to avoid scaling. Place in the fridge to cool.

Slice scones in half and serve with big dollops of custard…and Enjoy!
