ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 220 degree C (200 C for fan forced oven).
  • Grease and flour a 8cm deep, 19cm (base) square cake tin.
  • Place flour, sugar and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add butter and using fingertips rub butter in flour mix until mix resembles fine breadcrumbs (or give it a quick buzz in the food processor and then transfer mix to a bowl).
  • Make a well in the centre and add buttermilk and using a flat bladed knife, stir until dough almost comes together.
  • Place on a lightly floured surface and knead gently until dough comes together.
  • Press out to a 3cm thick round.
  • Dip a 5cm round cutter into flour to prevent dough sticking and cut out scones (biscuits).
  • Gently press leftover dough pieces together and repeat cutting out more scones - should make a total of 16 scones.
  • Place scones, touching into prepared tin.
  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until light golden and hollow when tapped on top.
  • Serve with jam and cream or honey (or golden syrup) and cream .

    Super TASTY and very FLUFFY scones! They were so easy and quick to put together and made for a wonderful breakfast treat this morning. I made some of them without the sugar and topped them with grated cheese before baking, which was really nice as well. These scones have a wonderful texture and a delicate not overly sweet taste. I made the full batch and got 10 big scones out of it. Thanks so much for sharing this gem of a recipe, I'm Pat! I will surely make it again! Made and reviewed for Every Day is a Holiday Tag Game March 2009.
