As shown on the Facebook live here is the recipe and guide to making scones, this recipe makes 7-8 Large scones or 12 medium

  • Prep Time : 10 minutes
  • Cook Time : 10-12 minutes
  • Yield : 8-12

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180c

In a large mixing bowl add the flour, baking powder and chilled butter, use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it forms breadcrumbs (when all the butter can not be seen)

Add in the sugar and fruit and mix in

Add in all but 2tbsps of the egg and all the milk, use a palette knife to mix together then place all the mixture onto a lightly floured surface

Knead the dough gently (only for 20 secs) just to make sure it is has all come together

Flatten out with your hand to a good thickness and then cut out your preferred scone size with a scone or cookie cutter

Lay them out on a baking tray lined with parchment paper or greased with butter, making sure there is space between them to grow during baking

Use a pastry brush or the back of a small spoon to brush over the remaining egg over the scones

Bakin in the oven for approx 10-12 mins, if baking the larger scones they take the higher time

Check they are baked by picking up and tapping on the base of the scone as they should have a slightly crisp bottom

To make the cream

Whip 290ml of cream (keep the remaining 10 ml to use if you over whip you can add this and stir in and bring it back) and 30g of icing sugar with a whisk until it stiffens ( when you can lift the whisk and it holds)

Spread on your scones (jam first) and Enjoy x
