Spring Week Food: Scones

Day 2 of Spring Week and I’m bringing you the food of the season, scones.

Now to be honest I love scones all year round, but there’s something about a cream tea in spring that just can’t be beaten! But forget waiting for the weekend to head to a cafe, homemade scones are even better, so here’s my spring time scone recipe!

Ingredients. 

200g Self Raising Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tbsp Caster Sugar
40g Butter
50g Sultanas (optional)
1 Egg
5 tbsp Milk

Method.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 210 degrees C (fan) and place in a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir. 
  • Rub the butter into the flour mixture using the tips of your fingers, until a fine breadcrumb has formed.
  • Add the sultanas and stir. 
  • Create a well in the mixture and add the egg and milk. 
  • Using a wooden spoon quickly mix it all together until the dough starts to form. 
  • Place the dough on a floured board and kneed lightly. 
  • Roll out the dough to the thickness of 2cm. 
  • Using a round cutter, cut out as many scones as you can (average of 6). 
  • Put them on the pre-heated trays and bake for 8-10 mins. 
Once they’re out of the oven and cooled slightly starts the tricky bit, jam or cream first? Either way they taste delicious and you’ll be going back for seconds!
