8 people
  • Ingredients
    • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (560 mL)
    • 1/3 cup sugar (75 mL)
    • 1 Tbsp baking powder (15 mL)
    • 1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)
    • 1 large egg (1)
    • 1/2 cup milk, plus extra for brushing (125 mL)
    • 1/3 cup canola oil (75 mL)
    • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen berries (not thawed) or chopped stone fruit (175 mL)
    • 1 Tbsp coarse sugar, such as demerara or turbinado sugar (15 mL)
  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C)
    2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    3. Crack egg into a measuring cup, stir with a fork and add enough milk to make 3/4 cup (175 mL). Add to dry ingredients along with canola oil and stir a few strokes, until partially combined. Add fruit and stir just until dough comes together.
    4. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, pat dough into a circle about 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick, and cut into 8 wedges with a knife. Separate wedges and distribute them evenly on baking sheet. Brush tops with a bit more milk and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
    5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a deep golden colour.
