Rustic Wholemeal Scones


Scones and Clotted Cream


I am very much of the moment type of person I get an idea in my head and just go with it , sometimes I have to hold myself back and plan more. Do you ever struggle and just want to rush out and do things ? , being Impetious can work. I think baking ,then going out and eat ing what I bake is beneficial to me not only am I learning and expanding on a new skill but I am also combining a love of the photography and the countryside.


Rolling Fields




Ingredients

To make 8 large scones you will need:


  • 175 wholemeal flour
  • 175 plain flour
  • 2oz (50g) butter
  • 4oz (112g) brown sugar ( optional )
  •   optional grated apple or sultanas
  •    2 heaped teaspoons baking powder
  •    200ml of Buttermilk or milk 
  • I free range egg

Method

This is what you'll need to do:

First pre-heat your oven to 200°C 
  1. Grease a baking tray
  2. Melt the butter
  3. Sieve together the flour, sugar (optional )and baking powder into a bowl
  4. Make a space in the centre of the mixture and pour in the melted butter , also at this stage at the egg ( already beaten)
  5. Mix together with a flat palate knife or  your hands if you wish ( just be careful not to touch anything )
  6. Add in the sultanas or apple at the stage if you wish
  7. Add the buttermilk or milk  adding a little at a time, this will make the scone mixture hold together without crumbling (not too much or the mixture will become very sticky)
  8. Either form into a round and shape each scone or just dollop on for a more rustic look.
  9. Place in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top ( keep at eye on them )
  10. Enjoy eating yummy warm scones with jam and cream ( Field is optional , this is my field *well I don't own it but I call it mine )

  2. OMG. Stop it. You're making me hungry woman! Love the look of these - might try them with blueberries though as I'm not a sultana fan. Then cover them in lashings of no added sugar jam and low fat peanut butter..... mmmmmmm
