This is how you make the most delicious scones

Must Try

What could be more British than scones? In March’s FoodWeLove box , the kitchen of Great Britain is in the lead, and of course scones should not be missing. That’s why they give you a basic recipe plus four variations for  jolly good scones.

For 8-10 pieces:

  • 300 grams self-raising flour
  • half a bag of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • Marrow of 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 100 ml whole milk
  • 50 grams butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • Baking tray with baking paper

Preheat the oven to 220°C. Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix into a (sticky) dough. Add some more milk if it is too dry.

Make eight to ten balls of the dough, or cut eight to ten circles with a pastry cutter. Place it on a baking tray with baking paper. Bake the scones for fifteen minutes at 220°C until golden brown.
