Scones


There was nothing more wonderful than waking up in the morning and smelling a hot baking treat being removed from the oven...and none more delicous than the simple scone!  Unlike a lot of people we didn't eat it with cream and strawberry jam...instead we had it with butter and dulce de leche or one of my other favourties was butter and lashing of honey!  YUUUUM!!  Sometimes it's the classic, simple recipes which bring the most delight!

Scones













  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 60g of butter (cut into pieces)
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup of milk


Stir together dry ingredients.  With a fork mix in the butter so the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre of dry mixture and milk (2/3) all at once and stir through (if the mixture is too dry and doesn't unite keep adding milk slowly.  With floured hands shape the dough into a ball.  Knead lightly.

Roll the dough to 1cm thickness.  Use a cutter to punch out the scones and place on an ungreased baking tray.  Bake at 230 degrees for 10-12mins or until golden.  Take out of the oven, choose your favourite topping - and try not to eat them all!!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
