Easy Scone Recipe

This is a simple recipe that has come to my rescue on numerous occasions especially when someone's scoffed all the bread or when unexpected visitors have arrived and there's nothing in the cake container except crumbs. It's also perfect for those who are just learning to bake.

2 cups sifted flour
½ tsp.salt
1 tbsp. baking powder
6 tbsp. butter or margarine
¾ cup milk

NB: Ingredients are best used at room temperature.
tsp. - teaspoon
tbsp. - tablespoon

Sift all dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking powder) into a bowl.
Add the butter or margarine and rub into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Gradually add the milk and shape into a soft but not sticky dough.

Remove dough from bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently for about a minute.

Roll out onto a lightly floured surface till about 12 mm thick. Cut out rounds with a medium or large-sized cookie cutter depending on the size that you want.

Place onto a greased baking tray and brush with some beaten egg or milk.

Bake in a preheated oven at 220°C (450°F) for 10 - 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and place onto a cooling rack.

Serve warm with butter, jam and cream, cheese or any topping of your choice.
