I found the ratio of dry to wet inredients in this recipe to be off; I could not make a dough for the life of me. As a result, the "batter" was extremely lumpy and the finished product the same. Perhaps there was too much flour; I'm not sure if decreasing it would work if everything else was left the same. I baked this like other scones: scored the 9-inch circle before baking and separating afterwards, but the centre did not cook. These scones had ok flavour but were SO heavy in the stomach. With some tinkering, this could be a much better recipe.
