    1. Before you start, preheat the oven to 220ºC/425ºF/Gas Mark 7 and lightly grease a baking tray.
    2. Place the Mix and baking powder in a large bowl and rub in the margarine until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
    3. Stir in the caster sugar and cherries/sultanas and then add sufficient liquid to form a soft but not sticky dough.
    4. Knead lightly on a surface lightly dusted with Mix and pat down until dough is 1inch thick.
    5. Cut out scones using a fluted scone cutter (re-knead any trimmings and repeat).
    6. Place onto baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until golden.
