Scones


Scones are so lovely as they are tender, flaky and crumbles in your mouth. It's wonderful when eaten with pure salted butter, homemade strawberry preserve & clotted cream. The secret to perfect Scones is not to handle it too much. The less you handle it, the lighter it tastes....

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-raising flour, sift
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 5 heaped tablespoon butter, but into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water

Method:

1. Preheat oven to very hot 22 deg C.
2. Put flour, sugar & salt in a large bowl.
3. Add cold butter & rub in lightly using fingertips.
4. Combine milk & water. Make a well in the centre of the flour. Pour all the liquid at once.
5. Mix quickly to a soft dough.
6. Turn into a floured (using self-raising flour). Knead lightly. Press into 1 inch thickness.
7. Cut using a round floured cutter. Place on a greased tray.
8. Glaze with milk.
9. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes.
10. Cool on wire rack. I love to eat it while hot with butter, jam & cream. Delicious!!

You can find clotted cream sold in supermarkets. If tak jumpa, whipping cream also ok, you have to whip it with some sugar.
