By Sheffieldgirl



  • 125g self-raising flour

  • 50ml milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 75g wholemeal spelt flour

  • 100ml sour cream

  • 50g butter cubed


<ol> <li>Preheat the oven to 200C.</li> <li>Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Add the butter to the bowl and rub together to make fine bread crumbs.</li> <li>Mix together the sour cream and the milk and add to the bowl. Bring the mix together into a dough. If the dough seems dry add another 1/2 tablespoon of milk to make a soft smooth dough that will leave the bowl clean. It's important not to overwork the dough or the scones will be heavy.</li> <li>Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Roll it out evenly to about 3cm thick. Cut the dough using a round cutter (9cm for medium scones or 6cm for small scones). You may need to re-roll the dough to make all your scones.</li> <li>Place the scones on a floured baking tray, brush the tops with milk, (you could sprinkle some grated cheese on top of the scones) then put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the scones have risen and are a nice golden brown colour.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>Serving suggestion: Mix cream cheese with a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped dill, top with <br />smoked salmon.</p>
