Hi! I've missed posting last week because I was really dread tired from the schooling and working. I appreciate all my followers and readers for being patient with me 💕 you all are such a darling!!
I tried to make some easier bakes today so I could get back to my personal shopping on taobao for all the preparations for my engagement. Yes! I'm getting married! It would be something simple but yet there's so much to do! Oh, I got excited and got carried away. Let's get back to the recipe for scones! Haha~
Scones are pretty common for breakfast in the western countries, just like our bread with gu you (butter) and kaya lah~ but somehow, scones looks and sounds more atas, probably because of the appearance, somewhat crispy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside.
Most scones are pretty dry, but I like mine soft and wet. Trust me! You will have a different feel about scones after trying mine 😋
300g self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
85gm cold butter, cut into small cubes
4 tbsp castor sugar
150gm dairy whipping cream
4 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg with milk beaten for glazing
- Preheat oven at 200C.
- Combine flour, sugar, salt, butter (cubed) into a processer and do a few pauses to combine the mixture OR you could use the rub in method to do this.
- Combine whipping cream, milk, vanilla essence in a bowl.
- Transfer the flour mixture into a big bowl, dig a well in the middle. Pour in the whipping cream mixture.
- Using a spatula or hands, gently fold in the mixture until it comes together in a ball.
- Flour your work surface, put the dough into your workplace and gently knead a few times then shape it into a round shape.
- Prepare your baking tray. Line your baking tray with baking baking.
- Dip your cutter into a bowl of flour and cut out the dough into shapes, put directly onto your baking tray.. I use a 5cm round cookie cutter and makes about 14 pieces of scones.
- Beat an egg and add some milk. Brush it onto the top of the scones. This is give he scones a very beautiful golden colour.
- Bake in the oven for about 12-15mins.
- Remove from oven. Transfer each scones onto a wire rack and let cool.
- Serve with butter and jam!
I have some left-over cranberries, so i add them in during the 2nd re-kneading of dough.
I did not want to waste any single bit of dough, and i put in the last left over too!
