  • 36 g tomato puree
  • 100 ml veg oil
  • 300 g flour self raising
  • ¼ tsp chilli powder or spices
  • 1 tblsp vinegar
  • enough water to make a soft dough
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • If your oven needs it, heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Mix together the flour and salt and chilli powder or spices.
  • Stir in the oil, tomato puree, vinegar
  • Add enough cold water to make a soft dough. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Scones benefit from as little handling as possible.
  • Pat out to around 2cm thick. Use a 1.5in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on the baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
  • Brush the tops of the scones with a little salt water.
  • Bake for 12 minutes until risen and orangey golden. Cool on a wire rack.
