scone in 60 seconds

So the other day I bought cream
purpose was to make scones to bring up the mountain
during the hike
but uh, that didn’t happen
so we made carbonara (two times)
and I still had some more cream left over
ergo, scones were made
this recipe is the bomb

you would need:
– 3.5 cups of self raising flour (I made my own by adding 1.5 tsp of baking powder and 0.5 tsp of salt to 1 cup of flour)
– 2 tbsp of granulated sugar
– 60 g of butter (cubed)
– 1.5 cups of buttermilk (made my own again, added 1 tbsp of vinegar to 1 cup of skim milk and leave for about 10ish mins)
– jam and whipped cream 
– or nutella (awe to the some)

1. preheat oven to 200 C
2. chuck the flour sugar and a pinch of salt into a large bowl – add the cubed butter and rub the butter until the mixture kinda looks like fine breadcrumbs
3. make a hole in the centre and add the buttermilk, use a spatula to combine everything
4. place the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until dough doesn’t stick to your hand – let it rest for 5ish mins
5. roll out to a 3 cm thick disc shape and cut using a 5cm round cutter
6. place scones, touching onto a baking tray and bake those babies for 15 to 17 mins until light golden and hollow when tapped
7. serve with jam and cream (and nutella)

to be honest, I’m in pretty bad shape.
much like the leftover dough which wasn’t enough to make a perfect round scone
yeah, that’s how I feel..

incomplete and all lop-sided.
