I was craving some scones with clotted cream and strawberry since last week when I visited the English grocery store not far from me. So last Sunday I baked myself some fresh scones and served them with some clotted cream and strawberry jam and of course a nice cup of tea.
I did make them very big but hey go big or go home, right? These scones are very neutral so you can just as easily eat them with some salmon and sour cream. I think I might make some savory scones next time.
What you will need to make the Scones;
450 g all purpose flour (3 cups)
1 (little) bag baking powder (15 gram/1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
40 cl milk (1 1/4 cup)
60g cold butter (3 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon salt
- Preheat your oven to 201°C or 410°F.
- Sift your flour, baking powder and salt into a big bowl. Slice your butter into small cubes and add them to your flour mixture. Kneed your butter into your flour.
- Mix the milk and lemon juice together and pour this into you butter and flour mixture.
- Flour your working space very well because this dough is really sticky. Roll your dough out until the dough is 2,5 cm or 1 inch thick. I used a pretty big cookie cutter but if you like smaller scones you can use a cookie cutter or 5 cm or 2 inches big.
- Grease your baking sheet and place your scones on top, brush the scones with some milk and bake them for 20 minutes.
- Let them cool a bit and serve them with some clotted cream and jam or some salmon and sour cream if you are craving for something savory. Enjoy!
How do you like to eat your scone? Savory or sweet?
