Easy Scone Recipe

Easy Scone Recipe

There seems to be a myth that scones are hard to make. They’re not, in fact I find a scone the easiest of the baked good to knock out at will. Bust the myth today and knock out some scones in under 20 minutes.

  • Here’s My Easy Scone Recipe –
  • 450g Self raising flour
  • 4tsp Baking powder
  • 100g Butter
  • 50g Golden caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Milk

1. Put the flour, baking powder and butter into a bowl. Rub into very fine breadcrumbs.

2. Stir in sugar.

3. Break the eggs into a jug then add milk to the jug until the eggy/milky mixture reaches 300ml. Mix together well with a fork.

4. Slowly add the milk and egg mixture to the flour mixture. You probably won’t need all of it, so do this slowly. Bring the mixture together into a soft (not sticky), almost shiny dough.

5. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and roll out to 2 cm thickness. Cut into rounds using a fluted cutter.

6. Place on a baking tray and brush the tops of the scones with the leftover eggy-milky mixture.

Cook for 10 minutes at 220c or Gas mark 7.
