Making Scones

Preheat oven to 190C


350g self-raising flour
1 1/2 tea spoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 table spoons icing sugar

Sift all dry ingredients in large bowl twice,
in another bowl mix together

150mls milk
150mls cream
45g melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Make a well in the dry ingredients
and pour the wet mixture in the hole.
Mix together using 2 butter knifes and be careful that  you don't over mix it. Put it on a floured surface and gently press with your hands, grab a 5cm cutter and cut 12 scones. Place on oven tray lined with baking paper and in the oven it goes for 10-15 minutes till lightly golden.
My favourite is to eat them with strawberry jam and butter - enjoy!

    This is a great idea for a post! Its something quite simple, yet really effective a great visual with the photograph and really clear instructions. Great job.

  2. Hi Ebony

    Those scones look super yummy! Are those the ones that you made?
    I would like to try your recipe. What heat should I set the oven to?

  3. Hi Ebony
    Thanks for sharing these really clear instructions for how to make delicious, buttery scones. I can't wait to try them too. I can see that you have to pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees Celcius. I will try that later, and I hope mine turn out as well as yours did.

    1. Silly old me Ebony! You told me to preheat the oven right at the beginning! Now I'm off to make some scones!

  4. Hi Ebony,

    I agree with Mr. Webb, this is a great idea for a blog post. It makes me want to bake my own! I think I might make some with my daughter over the Easter weekend. We usually have fruit in our scones but my daughter prefers them without. So I think we'll try your recipe. I've never used vanilla essence of icing sugar in my ingredients before so I am looking forward to discovering what they will taste like. I'll let you know!

    Thank you for sharing your recipe and clear instructions Ebony.
