Basic buttermilk scones

May 14, 2015

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

Raspberry jam and whipped cream, to serve

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. 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. 15 Minutes
