Scrummylicious Scones for Humans
Duchess Anna Maria Russell did not invent scones. Scones were invented much earlier, but it was the Duchess’s idea to have scones served with her afternoon tea.
That’s why today, you will always see scones served with afternoon tea. In fact, afternoon tea isn’t an afternoon tea without scones!
Would you like to learn how to make Scrummylicious Scones for Humans? Yes? Brilliant!
Here are the ingredients you will need
- 225g self-raising flour
- 55g butter
- 25g caster sugar
- 150ml milk
- A pinch of salt
- A drop of milk to glaze
Always remember to have a grown-up to help you.
First of all, you need to wash and dry your hands.
Ask a grown-up to pre-heat an oven to 220C/200C fan/Gas 7.
Mix together the flour and then rub in the butter until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar and then the milk to make a soft sticky dough.
Turn your dough onto a floured work surface. Knead your dough very lightly. Pat it out to a round shape and about 2cm thick.
Use a small cutter to stamp out your scones and then put them gently onto a greased baking tray.
Brush the tops of your scones with a little bit of milk.
Bake your scones for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Leave your scones to cool down.
Serve your scones with butter and jam or fresh cream and jam. Yummy!
