Buttermilk Scones

Ini adalah breakfast dipagi Ahad lepas. Dah lama dah sy dok belek2 resepi buttermilk scones ni dlm siri buku BBC - Good Food 101 Cakes & Bakes. I have to try buat the recipes in all these 3 books...dah beli, kena la guna kan?

Scones is defines by Wiki as British quick bread. Sy ingat susah nak buat, rupanya senang aje tp for me still dlm kategori yg leceh sbb nak kena uli, then roll and then bake. So agak berkecah la dapur dgn tepung!

Scones ni sedap dimakan dgn strawberry jam dan whipped cream. Utk adunan 350g tepung dan saiz acuan benjo, sy dpt 20 biji scones! Banyak kan?

Utk resepi:

350g self-raising flour
100g castor sugar
85g butter, cut into small pieces
About 175ml buttermilk or natural low-fat sugar
Whipped cream & strawberry jam to serve

1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Mix together the flour and sugar in a bowl. Rub the butter in with fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre of of the ingredients and tip in the buttermilk, all in one go, then mix lightly to form a soft dough.

2. Tip the dough out on to a lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Press the dough out to a 2.5cm/1 inch thickness, then stamp out 5 cm/2inch rounds with cutter. Gather up the trimmings, knead again briefly and stamp out more rounds.

3. Transfer the scones to a baking sheet, spaced a little apart and bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and light golden. Leave the scones to cool on a wire rack and serve with the whipped cream and jam.
