Scones

DSC_1135

Today was the day- the day to bake scones. why… because I have never, ever baked them, I had some butter in the fridge, I live in England, and last but not least it is a Mary Berry recipe. Anyway I thought that I need lots of butter… oh well I will have to bake some shortbreads soon ;p But back to the scones. Recipe is as usual so simple and takes no time at all.Scones are delicious freshly baked especially when served with whipped cream and strawberries. They will be also nice to eat just with a butter. I was also thinking to maybe next time go a bit crazy with flavour… a bit more creamy, add some lemon zest or lavender or some spices? I would definitely try something new.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • about 100 ml milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 40 g soft unsalted butter
