Comments Off on Fruit Scones

I was very lucky years ago to have been trained by a former pastry chef to the Queen. So coupled with the fact I have recently made a film with the current head chef at The Palace, the recipes have come from those experiences.

Ingredients
 

  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tsp level baking powder
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 50 g fat, juicy sultanas, optional
  • 6 tbsp butter milk, approximately
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • peach jam
  • clotted cream , Rodda’s

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C, Gas 6.
  • Rub the butter, salt, baking powder and flour together lightly.
  • Then add the sugar and sultanas.
  • Add the buttermilk and mix very lightly until you have a soft dough. Do not overwork. You can always add a little extra milk if needed, and the dough should be nice and soft.
  • Cover and leave to prove for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out very carefully until the dough is 3-4cm thick, about 1 inch.
  • Cut out with a plain cutter and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops with a beaten egg.
  • Cook in the pre heated oven until well risen and golden, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Serve warm with strawberry jam first, then clotted cream on top, the Cornish way!
