Without tea and scone, the British can not live. Basically, scone are small, soft rolls that are usually baked with raisins (which I did not do because my kids do not like raisins). The pastry is not just a food, but an elixir of life par excellence. Something like the all-rounder for everyday life. They help in a bad mood, in a good mood, of course. when you question life again or when you have a fight with your wife. if you have to worry about the traffic chaos around London or if it rains again. Or they are just there because it’s part of it.
- 250 g Flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 0,5 Teaspoon salt
- 60 g butter
- 150 ml whole milk
- 1 egg
Time: 30 min
- Preheat the oven to 190 ° C top / bottom heat. Lay out a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix the flour with baking powder, sugar and salt. Rub the cold butter in pieces with the finger under the flour until the consistency of crumbly sand arises. Alternatively, incorporate the butter with the food processor in the flour. Put the flour mixture back into the bowl and form a bowl in the middle. Pour the milk into the bowl and use a fork to fold in the flour until the dough is put together.
- Lightly mill the work surface, place the dough on top and also dust with flour so that nothing sticks to it when rolling it out. Roll out the dough 3 cm thick with a round biscuit cookie cutter (6 cm). Cut out scones from the dough.
- Place the scones on the baking sheet and sprinkle with a whisked egg. Bake in the preheated oven on the middle rack for 15 – 20 minutes.
- The scones already taste lukewarmly delicious.
Note: The preparation of the delicious scones is very easy. Flour is mixed with baking powder as a leavening agent and then incorporated the cold butter. Subsequently, the dough with the milk is joined together only quickly and not kneaded. This gives scones their typical consistency.
