Scones | Recipe

Buttery, flaky and light, these scones will definitely impress anyone who comes over for afternoon tea. Best served with clotted cream and jam and a cup of tea to experience the real British experience.
Make this for your next tea party!

Scones Recipe                                                                                                  Recipe by iSaamuel 
250g of all purpose flour,
1 tablespoon of baking powder,
50g of cold, cubed, salted butter,
50g of sugar,
1 egg,
100ml of milk,

1 beaten egg,
1 tablespoon of milk for the egg wash

1. Sift flour and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar until well combined.
2. Add in the butter and using your fingertips, rub until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
3. Make a well in the centre and add in the egg and milk. Stir with a spatula until a soft dough forms.
4. Gather the dough together. Flour your work surface and pour it out onto it.
5. Roll the dough until it is an inch thick throughout. Using fluted cookie cutters, cut out the scones.
6. Place the scones on a lined baking sheet and brush on the egg wash for a golden brown finish.
7. Bake at 180c for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. The scones should be well risen and puffed up.
Let the scones cool before serving with clotted cream and jam. Meanwhile, you can make your cup of tea!

Feel free to replace the milk in this recipe with buttermilk to make buttermilk biscuits which you can then serve with homemade sausage and gravy for a Southern twist. Enjoy!
