Scones

A cup of tea is never the same without scones – served with freshly whipped cream, grated cheese and jam, of course.

Last year I had a challenge to bake perfect scones for my sister’s birthday. I tried 3 different recipes and was still not really 100% satisfied with the results.. So  this is yet another recipe I had to try!! 🙂

Scones

2½ cups all-purpose flour

10 ml castor sugar

20 ml baking powder

2 ml salt

200 ml (180 g) butter, cut into small pieces

100 ml milk, plus extra for brushing

1 large egg

Preheat the oven to 200 C and line a baking tray with     parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter. Mix the egg and milk in a small bowl, and stir into flour mixture until moistened.

Turn out onto a lightly floured  work  surface to complete bringing it together with your  hands. Roll the dough out into a rectangle.

Cut into rounds and place on the prepared baking           sheet. Bake for minutes in the preheated oven, or  until golden brown.IMG_2757

  1. I started baking scones recently after going for high tea and having lavender scones with lemon curd instead of jam. They were amazing, and now often recreated 🙂
