Recipe taken from King Arthur Flour’s website.
I find this really easy and quite nice(crisp outside and tender and soft within)
Only 2 ingredients if you are using self raising flour. Else, like me, make own self raising flour by mixing 230g flour(ie 2 cups) with 3 teaspoon of baking powder, and about 1 teaspoon of seasalt. I used salted butter as well, so the scone comes out salty enough :p
Baked in around 200 to 205 celcius for about 14 to 15 minutes.
Ingredients all laid out
mix flour and butter with pastry cutter bought from Ace Hardware which i hardly use.
till it become breadcrumb like texture
add in milk and dump the whole mixture into greaseproof paper/baking sheet
roughly push the whole mixture into one whole piece of dough, light mixing is key of making a tasty scone
Cut into rounds
As read from some online site, baking scone in a cake tin will result in higher scone, due to heat trap inside the cake tin or what not… i am not so sure that it works for me as mine doesn’t rise too high
Yummy when warm
