Devon Scones

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

This recipe is for Devon Scones. Scones are one of the easiest things to bake. The dough is really simple to put together, and there is no need for it to rise. Just shape the dough, 10 minutes in a hot oven, and you have the most amazing scones ever! 
Serve with jam and cream for a juicy tea time treat!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Self-Raising Flour
2. Baking Powder
3. Butter
4. Caster Sugar
5. Milk
6. An Egg

Bismillah, let's begin!

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 7 or 220 degrees.

In the bowl of a Kitchen Aid mixer, sift in 8 ounces (250 grams) self-raising flour.

Next, sift in 2 teaspoons baking powder.

Add in 2 ounces (60 grams) butter.

Mix using the paddle attachment until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. If you're not using a machine, then rub the mixture with your fingertips. 

Add 1 ounce (30 grams) caster sugar.

Stir to combine.

Next, take 1/4 pint milk plus a little extra.

Add 1 egg to the milk.

Beat lightly to combine.

Add half of the milk to the flour mixture.

Mix in the machine, adding more milk, until .. 

..a sticky dough forms. Set the remaining milk mixture aside for later.

Place the dough onto a floured surface.

Lightly knead the dough until smooth. Roll the dough out until 1 cm thick.

Cut the pastry into rounds with a pastry cutter.

Place the rounds onto a greased and lined baking tray.

Brush the rounds with the remaining milk and egg mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven at Gas Mark 7 or 220 degrees for 10 minutes, until the scones have risen and are golden brown.

Cool the scones on a wire rack.

Serve with jam and cream, for a special tea!
