DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°F Lightly dust a baking sheet with some flour.
  • Put the whole wheat flour and wheat germ into a large mixing bowl. Sift the all-purpose flour, salt and baking soda into the bowl. Mix the ingredients well together with fingers.
  • Next, rub in the butter to pea-sized pieces; then mix in the sugar.
  • At this stage, put the lightly dusted tin into the oven to preheat.
  • Stir in enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead for a few seconds. Cut out scones with a round cookie cutter.
  • Put the scones on the preheated baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until risen and a golden brown.
  • Cool on a wire tray.
