Scones Recipe!

| March 4, 2012 | 20 Comments

I am sharing our Scones Recipe, as part of a very quick and a very special post to celebrate the launch of a bloggy collaborative “12 Dishes Around The World“. A group of bloggers have come together explore the world, by cooking dishes from a selection of countries. How wonderful is that?

The route starts in the UK, a la Phileas Fogg’s Journey around the world in 80 days.  You are more than welcome to join in!

We decided to keep things simple and made some “Good Ole English Scones” – to be eaten with cream/ butter and strawberry jam!!!

Our Recipe:

Preheat oven to 230C/ 450F

  • 225g self raising flour
  • 1/2 tea spoon salt
  • 1 tea spoon sugar
  • 25g butter
  • 100ml milk
  • additional drop of water if necessary to form a smooth dough

1. Crumble flour, butter, salt and sugar together. There isn’t much butter, so it won’t be as crumbly as a normal cookie dough.

2. Gradually add the milk and keep mixing. Until you get a smooth dough. If it is still falling apart, add a little water. If it is beginning to get sticky don’t add all the milk.

3. Knead gently for another 2-3 min.

4. Spread out (approx 2cm) and cut out your scone shapes with cookie cutters. Re-knead the dough and re-cut until you have non left. We managed to make 11 small scones with the above recipe.

5. Brush with milk.

6. Bake in oven for 10-15min until gold brown.

Serve with butter/cream and strawberry jam and have yourself a tea party!

  10. oh they sound great, and those chubby little hands are adorable!

  11. You\’ve inspired me to cook shaped scones this week with my daughter as we spend the week cooking in the UK afterschool. I love your photos of their fingers with the dough, such a sensory experience in the kitchen. Amanda also posted a great way for older kids to make their own scones by setting things up in advance with them.
