Scones recipe

My daughters wanted to do some baking this afternoon and I knew that I had the ingredients to make some plain scones already in my store cupboard.

I’m enjoying teaching them to cook the foods that they love to eat but sometimes I do forget that they are learning these skills for the first time. Hopefully I will have it drummed into them that hands and surfaces must always be clean that most foods can’t be eaten until they’re cooked.

Ingredients (makes 6)

225g self raising flour

A pinch of salt

55g butter

25g caster sugar

75ml semi-skimmed milk

1 egg, beaten to glaze (optional)

  • Mix flour and salt together.
  • Rub in the butter.
  • Stir in the sugar and then the milk.
  • Mix together to form a soft dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured worktop and roll out to a 1.5cm thickness.
  • Cut out individual scones using a cutter (2″) or a clean, upturned glass.
  • Put the scones onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Brush the top of the scones with the egg.
  • Place the tray of scones into a pre-heated oven at 220’C for approximately 15 minutes, until golden.
  • When done, place the scones onto a wire rack to cool.

I like to put butter and jam on my scones, especially when they’re still a little bit warm.

These scones are easy to make and if you get your kids to make them they will love getting in there with their hands.

Have a great week, I’ll be back with a knitting related post soon.
