It's scone time at the cottage ... again!
You can find the recipe here.
So here goes, step by step with pictures ...
Step 1 (above) weigh out the flour.
Step 2 (below) add bread soda & bicarb
Step 3 (completely optional) Smile and pose for the camera
Step 4 - weigh out your margarine. If like me, you're rubbish at maths i.e. converting grams and ounces, this could take a few mins.
Step 5 - add the marg to the bowl and rub into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
Step 6 - Add some of the egg to the buttermilk
Step 7 - Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and shape your hand like a claw to mix them all together.
Step 8 - Once you have mixed it all place the mixture on a floured board and knead gently
Step 8 - Roll out the mixture and cut into whatever shape you wish. Place the scones onto a lightly floured baking tray.
Step 9 brush with the remaining egg mix
Step 10 - (pose optional) place in pre-heated oven and wait ...
Come back tomorrow for the results
Never .... :O)
