Here’s my tribute to the Great British Bake Off which is back on the telly, my attempt at Mary Berry’s scones recipe.
These are the ingredients you will need:
450g (1lb) self-raising flour
2 rounded tsp baking powder
75g (3oz) butter
50g (2oz) caster sugar
2 large eggs
about 225ml (8fl oz) milk
clotted cream or double cream, whipped
Preheat the oven to 220°C/425°F/gas mark 7. Lightly grease two baking-sheets.
For the instructions visit the website so I don’t infringe any copyright by just taking Mary Berry’s work. Briefly:
It doesn’t take much – rub the butter into the flour; mix in the sugar; top up the two eggs with milk until you get to 300ml and then mix.
Roll out on to a floured surface and cut with a round shape. Push round cutter in and then pull out, don’t twist.
Bake for 10-15 minutes.
