INTRODUCTION

For my first blog post, I thought I’d post something for Mothers’ Day. I think the easiest thing to teach kids to bake are scones. So to ensure that they know how to bake them for Mothers’ Day tea this Sunday, I taught them this super easy recipe.

 500 ml Flour
 15 ml Baking Powder
 2 ml Salt
 60 ml Castor Sugar
 65 g Butter (soft, room temperature)
 1 Egg
 125 ml Milk

METHOD

1

Preheat oven to 200 º C

2

Sift dry ingredients into a bowl.

3

Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until they look like bread crumbs.

4

Beat the egg into the milk and add to the flour mixture.

5

Mix together with a knife and then use your hands to form a dough.

6

Turn out onto a floured surface and pat flat, about two cm high.

7

Using a scone cutter, or just a glass, cut scones from dough.

8

Place scones onto a greased baking sheet and brush with a little more milk.

9

10
