Food, Recipes


Sheldon’s been craving scones recently, so I finally made a batch on Wednesday.
Some of them turned out like biscuits and didn’t quite look like a scone. They tasted
good though. I’d add more baking powder to this recipe next time.

by Tina Bester

Makes 15

500g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
60g butter, diced
1 large egg, beaten
250ml buttermilk
milk for glazing

Preheat the oven to 200˚C. Sift the flour and baking powder together in a bowl. Stir in
the sugar and salt and then add the diced butter. Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add the egg to the buttermilk and beat, then
add this mixture to the flour. Mix together, gather into a ball and knead lightly.

Flatten to about 3cm thick and cut out rounds with a cookie cutter. Place them on a lined baking tray, brush with milk and bake for 10–12 minutes or until golden brown and risen.

    Gee c, every time I see your food posts my mouth droooooollssss….Shane must love dinner time at your house, so imaginative with your meals and now you have me craving a scone. 🙂

  2. They look great, I’m going to be making some soon. I can’t wait to blog them now :D. You should try them with some clotted cream – you’ve not really enjoyed a scone until you’ve had them with proper Cornish clotted cream.
