I received some lovely messages yesterday from those of you that read my last recipe post. Some of you even made my bread and butter pudding recipe! I was even more chuffed to see requests to do some more recipes. I know we’re all pretty limited at the moment in terms of being able to leave the house and are also restricted by what is available at the shops. With that in mind, I’m trying to keep everything as simple as possible. For those of you that watch my Instagram stories, you’ll know that I’m mad for scones. I often go on baking rampages gifting them to my pals.
Here are some reviews:
“Yeah, grand”– Deirdre
“It’s pronounced scon” -Conor
“You once made me a giant scone instead of a birthday cake by accident one year. You made me eat a slice.”-Seán, my brother
With those kind of reviews who wouldn’t want to make these bad boys? So, let’s get started!
Your Ingredient List:
- 1 Egg
- 400g of Self Raising Flour
- A Rake of Sultanas
- 200ml Milk
- 1 Tsp Baking Powder
- 2 Tsp Castor Sugar
- 90g Butter
You’re going to want your oven up to 180 degrees. You’re also going to want to wash your hands.
In a bowl you’re going to chuck in the sugar, flour, baking powder, butter and milk. This is where you get your wooden spoon and then your hands mucky. Mix it up!!
Feck in a bunch of sultanas (optional).
Break the rolling pin out and roll out a flat, but fairly thick bit of dough.
A cookie cutter is a fantastic way to make sure you get a nicely shaped scone! Make sure it’s a big one though!
Throw them all onto a baking tray with a bit of greaseproof paper underneath. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
Send me pics of all your results!
