We all know what Wednesdays mean, right? Of course I am talking about the excitement of another installment of Great British Bake Off! So in the spirit of all things GBBO I thought I would share a little typical British baking recipe. You can’t get more British than a good scone with jam and cream along side a cuppa, right? Apologies to those from across the waters who have no idea what I am talking about! Anyway wherever you are from I encourage you to try this fab recipe and release your inner british-ness…?
225g self-raising flour
25g caster sugar
Firstly, pre-heat your oven to 220C/Gas mark 7.
Then, mix the flour and butter.
Then, add in the sugar and milk until a soft dough is formed.
On a floured surface, knead the dough and roll out to around a 2cm thickness.
Using a cutter, cut out scones until the dough is used up.
Then place on a lined baking tray.
Brush a little bit of milk over the tops of the scones.
Then bake for 15 minutes until risen and a golden colour.
Are you a fan of scones?
