International Scones Week


I baked scones for International Scones Week. That’s not to say that I baked them during International Scones Week. Last week was manic; the scones had to wait for me to breathe. Sunday morning was calm enough for the occasion, so here’s my contribution to Celia’s annual event. Photos of the participants’ scones are at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial

Stevia is the sweetener rather than sugar, buttermilk with a splash of milk to slacken its thickness is the liquid, self-rising flour, salt, and cold cubed butter rubbed into the flour. I mixed the dough with a table knife, patted it to a 3cm floured flat disk, and then used the largest cutter I could find. If you’re going to eat a scone, I reckon you should eat a scone … not a dainty petit four with a drop of jam.

    What’s the secret to creating a great scone? I’ve never made one that seemed just right…

    1. Misky says:

      Hi Claire. No secret, really. Every cookery book will warn against overworking the dough. I just minimally mix the dough JUST to the point where it’s combined. No kneading or heavy rolling out.

    Your scones look delicious and you’re completely right about the size.

      It’s nice to ‘feel’ as if you’ve eaten something! Thanks for leaving a comment, Anne.
