Well…in all fairness I only made the scones. The butter was store bought and the jam was made by Markus and his sister two Summers ago. Did you know my man can make jam? I didn’t either, until he told me in detail how it was. And it tastes amazing. Even better with butter and scones! Keep on reading to know how I made these!
My mum does some very good scones and she did give me her recipe a while ago. But before that I had some cravings for scones and I searched the web for the easiest recipe (what? I like easy recipes…it’s easier and safer on the kitchen..). I was very skeptical about this recipe, but it actually turned out very good!
The base recipe requires these ingredients:
- 225 flour
- dash of baking powder (or you can just get flour that already has some)
- 40g sugar
- 6 table spoons of milk
- 1 table spoon butter
- 1 egg
I change it up a bit, to be honest. The recipe is simply to mix all the ingredients and that’s it. I use less sugar, add a bit of salt and use the butter melted. Otherwise I do what it calls for, I mix it all with my hands and then form small balls. It’s supposed to be messy and not too mixed up, so it gets the texture it’s supposed to have – scone texture. After that you get the scones into the oven that is pre-heated to 180º and wait for about 25 minutes. Oh, and beware, the smell is beyond yummy! They taste best with butter and jam. Any kind of jam. As long as the scones are still hot and the butter melts, the jam gets mixed into the butter and everything tastes heavenly.
This is a very easy recipe for scones, if you want to make them quick. And the good thing, they turn out completely different than my mother’s, so I can still enjoy both versions without feeling guilty! Yay for scones!
