Buttermilk scones

Buttermilk scones

I woke up at 4:30 am to bake these beauties since my husband had forgotten to buy bread for breakfast. I must say i deserve wife of the year award. Anyway, some people have been asking for the recipe so i decided to post it it here on my blog.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  •  1 tablespoon caster sugar
  •  Pinch of salt
  •  60g butter, chilled, chopped
  •  3/4 cup buttermilk
  •  Extra buttermilk, for brushing

Method:

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper or don’t, just do whatever floats your boat. Position oven rack in the top half of oven.
  • Step 2
    Sift flour, sugar and salt into a bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Step 3
    Make a well in centre of mixture. Add buttermilk. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth.
  • Step 4
    Using a lightly floured rolling pin, gently roll dough out until 2cm thick. Using a 6cm round cutter, cut out scones. Press leftover dough together. Repeat to make 12 scones.
  • Step 5
    Place scones, just touching, on prepared tray. Brush with buttermilk. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden and hollow when tapped on top. Serve with jam and cream.
    Enjoy!
