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)

method:
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.
