I know that scones are more of a summer treat but the other day I made some scones which were requested by my dad, and I used a recipe from CupcakeJemma.
I struggle with scones, I tried recipe after recipe to try and get them right but they never tasted like the proper British scone, but the other day I tried out Jemma’s method and loved it so I wanted to share it with you all. They are smaller than the ‘classic’ scone but I actually like them better like this. Anyway, you can always have two!
500g Plain Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tbsp Caster sugar
110g Cold unsalted butter (chopped)
300ml Whole milk
Preheat your oven to 190c/375F
In a bowl, sieve in the flour, sugar, and the baking powder, then put this into a food processor and add your chopped cold unsalted butter then mix it all in the processor until it’s a crumbly texture with no big lumps of butter in.
Move your crumbly mixture back into your bowl and make a well in the middle and pour your milk into it, gradually add the outer crumble with the milk. This is the point where you can add your sultanas or anything you would like in the scones.
Remove the dough from the bowl onto a heavy flour board and roll it out until it’s 3cm thick. Use a circular cutter to cut the dough and place onto a tray with some grease proof paper on.
Place into the oven for 15-20 mins until lightly brown.
Now you can add loads of cream and jam!
I hope you have been enjoying more baking posts as I am trying to cook more.
What do you like to put on first? Cream or Jam
