Sunday Samples Buttermilk Scones

These scones are super yummy, they're a great little treat to have with a cup of tea or as a brunch. I make them with a small cutters so they are suitable for Amina and also it makes me feel less guilty when I have 2 of these instead of 2 larger ones. They're gorgeous straight out of the oven, still piping hot with a little butter on them. They're great too English "high tea" style with some whipped cream and raspberry or strawberry jam. Super indulgent, delicious and very naughty so I only indulge in the scones this way very occasionally. So here's my method for Buttermilk scones

Preheat your oven to 220 degrees celsius.

Sift 10 1/2 oz of Self Raising Flour, A Teaspoon of Baking Powder
and a pinch of Salt into a bowl. Add 2 oz of Cubed Cold Butter

Rub the butter into the Flour with your fingers
until it resembles fine breadcrumbs

Take 10 Fl.oz of Buttermilk 

Add 1 and 1/2 oz of Golden Caster Sugar 

Mix your buttermilk into your mixture

Sprinkle flour onto a dry clean surface to ensure your mixture won't stick

Roll out to form a dough about 1 and 1/2 inches thick
and start to cut your scones

Place your cut scones into a greased baking dish

Rub milk onto the tops of the scones to give a nice golden finish,
 easy enough for a child to do.

Put in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden, then enjoy

It's literally that easy to do. Only take a few minutes to prepare and are so yummy you may even find yourself making a second batch. Hope you like
