Our most requested recipe is for the scones that we serve at Afternoon Tea. Our Executive Pastry Chef was happy to oblige and has made this step-by-step video on how to make your very own batch at home. He recommends that you serve them freshly baked with cream and lemon curd – what is your favourite way to enjoy them? Happy baking!
Scones (makes 25 scones)
35gr baking powder
600gr plain flour
1 large egg
Place the cold butter, sugar, baking powder and flour in the mixer and mix slowly for 15 minutes until you have a fine powder.
Add the egg and milk and mix it until combined together.
Divide the dough in 2 halves.
Add the raisins to one half.
Roll it down to desired thickness and cut - you can use a knife and do square scones if you don’t have a cutter.
Glaze with an egg wash (3 yolks, 50gr milk) and bake in the oven at 180C for approx. 15 minutes (oven dependent)
