Scones

So, it’s been a while since my last post and I was inspired by another food blogger Janes Patisserie who recently posted her scone recipe and I thought I’d have a go at making some seeing as it had been a while since I last made them! I made a batch of 8 plain scones and 8 apple and cinnamon scones but sadly the apple scones came out a little over done – so I haven’t featured them on here!

The recipe is taken from The Dairy Book of Home Cooking 2012 edition which my Granny gave to me as a present and it’s been a life saver ever since – simply recipes used everyday. I also used my personalised Holly Rachel Bakes wooden spoon which was a lovely gift from my sister in law for my birthday a few weeks ago 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 225g Self raising flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50g Butter
  • 150ml Milk (plus extra for brushing)

Method:

  1.  Sift flour and salt into a bowl
  2. Rub butter into flour until it resembles breadcrumbs
  3. Add milk all at once and mix to a soft but not sticky dough using a knife
  4. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth
  5. Roll out until about 1cm thick
  6. Cut into 7-8 rounds with a 2.5inch biscuit cutter
  7. Transfer to a baking tray and brush with milk
  8. Bake at 230C for 7-10 minutes or until golden brown
  9. Cool on a wire rack and then enjoy warm with some butter – or my more recent favourite – lemon marmalade!

Enjoy! And if you like or bake this recipe – share this post and let me know! xx
