Tuesday Scones

As it's my Mum's birthday tomorrow I decided to celebrate by baking her a few treats! Started off with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's scones.

450g self raising flour
pinch of salt
2 tsp baking powder
100g butter, cubed
100g caster sugar 
300ml buttermilk

1. Preheat the oven to 200. Put the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Add the butter and rub in until it resembles bread crumbs.
2. Mix in the sugar. Then add the buttermilk and combine to make a rough dough, using a palette knife. Turn out onto a floured surface.
3. Roll out and cut using a scone cutter. Place on a baking tray, lined with greaseproof.
4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.

Ta da!

I filled mine with apricot jam and clotted cream and they were delicious! More to follow later X Bo
