Lemony Scones

This morning for breakfast I made scones. This time I tweaked a recipe from the Web, so essentially they are not copyrighted hahaha. Apparently if you change three measurements or ingredients from the original, it’s yours.

So here’s mine recipe:

350 g self raising flour
A teaspoon of baking powder
100 g butter
1 tbsp caster sugar
180 ml skim milk
1tsp vanilla essence
1grated lemon zest
Juice from one lemon

In a bowl I grated the butter into the flour and baking powder mix and used the rubbing in method. Then I added the sugar. The milk I warmed it up a bit and then added the vanilla essence, lemon zest and lemon juice. Or scones you have to work vey quickly and if you live in a hot and humid country like me you’ve got to make sure that all this is done in less than 5 min. I brushed milk onto the unbaked scones. And then bake it a hot 220 oven.

The result was soft lemony buttery scones. 🙂
