Baking Scones

So last week I went to visit my best friend on which we had previously decided to go to a country park near us, unfortunately the whether was not in our favour so we decided to go to her nans house and bake some scones.

This is probably one of the easiest recipes I have ever followed, so much so we did two batches, one with chocolate chips and the other with candy melts.


For this you will need:

250 grams of self raising flour

50 grams of unsalted butter

50 grams of caster sugar

A pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or a flavouring of your choice

100 millilitres of buttermilk

1 egg

60 grams of chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 210 degrees C

So firstly you want to sift the flour, sugar and salt together so that they are mixed together and that there are no lumps.

Next you want to add the butter, it should be a liitle cooler than room temperature and diced.

After this crack your egg and pour the butter milk into a jug or bowl and whisk together until combined, pour this mixture into the dry ingredients and butter.

Stir with a spoon until combined into a dough, flour a surface and a rolling pin and get rolling! I suggest around half an inch thick unless you want to sandwich them together then I suggest around half a centimetre.

Pop them into the oven for around 12-15 mins keeping an eye on them and wait until they go golden brown on top!

Add some clotted cream in the middle (or whatever you wish) and there you have it!! Nice and simple. ENJOY!!


What are your favourite things to bake?

Best wishes,
