Easy Peasy Recipe: Scones

Inspired by our recent trip to Cameron Highlands, I dug out an old recipe and baked enough scones to share with my PIL, alhamdulillah.

I will say this out of love: High content of refined carbohydrates, sugar and fat so please consume sparingly. Alternatively, you can also find ways to burn the extra calories off. 

Bakes 24 pieces, please adjust accordingly if you need less scones per batch).

500g self-raising flour
50g sugar
1/4 tsp salt

110g butter (I used 1/2 stick of grass-fed cow butter which comes in 227g per stick)

300ml milk (I used UHT fresh milk)

1 egg for egg-wash before baking

1. Preheat oven to 190C. 

2. Mix the dry ingredients well then add butter to attain crumbly texture.

3. Add milk gradually and mix until well combined. 

4. Shape dough to 1 inch thickness then cut each scone out using a cookie cutter. Working on flour-dusted surface and cutter reduces sticking. When baking with my kids, I let them do this part because it is fun (for them). 

5. Egg-wash, bake for 10-12 minutes.

Leave on rack to cool. Stores up to 2 days in room temperature (ours is usually 26 degrees Celcius).

Serve with strawberry jam and clotted cream on the side with a pot of hot tea. My kids get a mug of hot chocolate or warm milk with this treat. 

Do not forget to curl your pinkie.

Bon appetit!
