Method

1. Heat your oven to 200C/Gas 7.
2. Mix the flours, baking powder, salt, mixed spice and the zest of 1 orange. Grate the zest of the other orange into a little dish.
3. Juice both oranges. Add the raisins. Set aside.
4. Fold the carrot into the flour mix. Add the honey/agave and cold butter cubes. Work through the flour using your fingers (as if making pastry).
5. Pour in the raisiny orange juice, bit by bit, till the flour forms a ball that’s a little sticky but not too wet. Not using all the juice? Spoon or sieve the raisins out. Fold them into the dough.
6. Tip the dough out onto a well floured surface. Shape into a 3cm-thick rectangle. Use a round cutter or the rim of a glass to cut out your scones. You should get about 6.
7. Place on greased and floured baking sheet. Brush the tops with whisked egg for a glossy finish.
8. Bake 10-15 mins in the centre of the oven or till golden and cooked through.
9. Fold your reserved orange zest into a little dish of mascarpone. Ripple in a drizzle of honey. Serve with your warm scones.
