Easy Scones

Easy Scones

Super -easy scones - using a food processor to do all the work, and a mug to measure instead of weighing scales.

My first attempt at filming a recipe in a looooong time (For those who've been asking, this is why I won't be doing Zoom baking classes anytime soon!!)

Anyways, I hope you find it useful!

Here's  video part one and here's video part two

  The Recipe goes like this:

In a food processor with the blade attachment put:

2 mugfuls of self raising flour

1 heaped teaspoon baking powder

1 scant level teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons caster sugar

a large tablespoon/50g cold butter

Blitz until you have a sandy/breadcrumb consistency.

Add 1 mugful milk - pulse until the dough comes together.

Tip out of the food processor onto a floured surface.

Gently press together and roll out to about 8cm thick.

Cut circles - you'll get about 8 small scones from this recipe.

Brush with beaten egg.

Bake on a baking-paper lined tray for 15 minutes at 200 degrees C until golden brown and well risen.
