Plain and Fruit Scones

I’ve been thinking for a while about baking scones – they’re such a great thing to have in your repertoire, and with all of the different flavour variations you can try, the possibilities are endless!

I chose a simple recipe from my Be-Ro recipe book (definitely my go-to!) and made two batches – one plain and one fruit.

After sifting the flour and rubbing in the margerine, it was time to mix in the fruit. The recipe called for just 2 tablespoons of fruit, and I found this to be a little sparse so I will be more generous next time!

Once the wet ingredients were added and the dough rolled it was time to cut out the scones.

All that was left was to add a little glaze before popping them in the oven!

The plain scones were made in the same way, just omitting the fruit!

The end result was definitely a little flatter than I had anticipated, which may have been due to under or over working the dough, so I’ll give them another go and hope for a taller result! Taste-wise they went down a treat at our family lunch with lashings of strawberry jam and a good dollop of clotted cream! Yum!
