- 4 1/2 cups flour
- 2 heaped tablespoons baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
sift all the above, then add
- 2 heaped tablespoons caster sugar
- 1cup rolled oats
then, rub in
- 320g unsalted butter until resembles breadcrumbs.
then, make a well in the middle and add
- 8 tablespoons milk mixed with
- 8 tablespoons maple syrup
and mix with a fork. it should be firm and not too sticky. if it's too sticky, add a bit more flour. if it's too dry, add a tiny bit more milk. [have to eyeball it]
turn out dough onto floured surface, pat into 3 cm thick then cut out rounds and place onto lined baking sheet. brush tops with a little beaten egg wash.
bake at 200C until golden brown [how long this takes depends on the size of ur scones, ours were mini ones so they were done in 10 minutes] this recipe made about 76 mini scones.
all these ingredients make the yummiest scones EVER!!!! they were so delicious that you don't need to eat them with jam or anything. just on their own. buttery, flavourful and just the right texture - crisp to the bite but melts in your mouth afterwards.......
