Introduction: Quick Scones Recipe

Picture of Quick Scones Recipe

Me and my husband have different sleeping patterns - I get up when he's still asleep, and he goes to bed long after me. Sometimes I get up to find that he baked me scones for breakfast. They're very quick and easy to make, and so satisfying!
They take about twenty minutes altogether.

Step 1:

To make scones for 4 people (or 2 hungry and greedy!) you will need:

  • 230 g self-raising flour
  • 1/6 pack unsalted butter (not too cold)
  • 1,5 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 glass of milk
  • pinch of salt

First you need to warm up your oven to about 220 degrees C (or 200 degrees C if you have a fan assisted oven). Grease a baking tray with a little butter.
Sieve the flour into a bowl. Cut up butter into smaller pieces, and using your fingers mix it with flour.

Step 2:

Add salt and sugar. Whilst stirring, pour milk in - it should not be too dry or too sticky. Add more milk or flour if necessary. You can quickly knead it with your hands to make a ball. Now sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and roll it out to about 1/2 inch (1,5 cm) thick. I cut mine out using a glass - just press it through the dough. Put on a baking tray and bake until golden on the top shelf - it will take about 10-15 minutes.

Enjoy!

This is a great recipe, but I might suggest also converting some of it into a common form for Americans and others. Example "3/4 glass of milk". How much is 3/4 glass of milk? 3 cups? 400 grams? And How big is said glass? And "230 g self-raising flour" can be written in cups, too. Just a couple suggestions for those who can't convert recipes.
