SOFT AND FLUFFY SCONE RECIPE

SOFT AND FLUFFY SCONE RECIPE

Snacks are always appreciated when friends drop over for tea and chats. Tea time isn’t complete without traditional English scones, which are a hit across the globe. This recipe for soft and fluffy scones does the simple pastry justice. It also doesn’t matter to us whether you spread the jam on the sundae first or the whipped cream. You may also experiment with a huge number of different variations.

SOFT AND FLUFFY SCONE TIPS

To keep the scones light and airy, the dough should be pretty rough and the pieces of butter should be about the size of peas. The most common toppings are whipped cream and jam, often strawberry, fig, or apricot. If you’re in the mood for something savoury, try them with a little additional butter or a piece of cheese. You may also have some fresh fruit with your rooibos tea.

Fresh, fluffy scones are coming out of the oven, so put on the kettle. In fact, the companionship of others really enhances the experience.

SOFT AND FLUFFY SCONE RECIPE

Recipe by Robyn Brittow

Course: Breakfast, Dessert

Cuisine: English

Difficulty: Medium

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Servings: 12
Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 500 ml cake flour

  • 10 ml sugar

  • 2 ml salt

  • 20 ml baking powder

  • 125 ml milk or sour cream

  • 60 ml oil

  • 2 eggs

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease baking tray.
  • In a bowl sift the cake flour, salt and baking powder together, add sugar and make a well in the middle of the bowl.
  • Whisk one egg with oil and milk or sour cream in a bowl and add to the dry ingredients. The sour cream gives the scones a much lighter weight but it is still as delicious with the milk.
  • Once all the ingredients are in the bowl, using a knife, mix together to form a dough.
  • On a floured surface, roll out the dough and cut out twelve rounds and place on your baking tray.
  • Whisk the second egg and lightly brush the surface of each scone. ( This will help you achieve that beautiful golden colour.)
  • Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until the top is lightly golden.
  • Allow the scones to cool slightly but serve whilst still warm.

NOTES

  • Enjoy by adding a bit of butter, strawberry preserve and whipped cream, accompanied by some hot rooibos tea for the ultimate indulgence! Or for the savoury lovers, add some butter and cheese and enjoy for brunch or an afternoon snack.
