Scone Recipe – It’s tea time!

So, I just got back from a week in Cornwall, England.
If there is one thing those guys take seriously over there, it is their scones. And who can blame them really? Scones are delicious.

Mary Berry is a whizz in the kitchen.
If you don’t know her, where have you been?
Watch yourself some Great British Bake off this weekend.

Here is her scone recipe.
They are the perfect treat for gouter or to be made ahead for breakfast!

You will need

  • 450g self-raising flour
  • 2 level tsp baking powder
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 100g butter, softened and cut into pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • a little milk
  • handful of sultanas(optional if your kids are fussy about fruit)

How to make this scone recipe :

Preheat the oven to 220C. Lightly grease two baking trays.

Put the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Crack the eggs into a measuring jug, then add enough milk to make the total liquid 300ml. Stir the egg and milk into the flour – you may not need it all – and mix to a soft, sticky dough.

Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and work in the sultanas, if using. Roll out to a rectangle about 2cm thick.

Cut into as many rounds as possible with a cutter and place them on the prepared baking trays. Brush the tops of the scones with a little extra milk, or any egg and milk left in the jug.

Bake for 12–15 minutes, or until the scones are well risen and a pale, golden-brown colour. Lift onto a wire rack to cool. Eat as fresh as possible.

To serve the traditional way, split the scones and serve with strawberry jam along with a good dollop of clotted cream. This is called a cream tea!
They can also be eaten plain or with butter. As you like.

There are quite a few options when it comes to scones, you could make cheese ones, oat and nuts, lemon and cranberry or sundried tomato to name just a few!
