- 450 g self-raising flour
- 50 g Butter
- 50 g sugar for sweet scones or 1/2 tsp salt for savoury scones
- 1 medium egg
- 250 g Milk or Buttermilk
Pre-heat your oven to 210° C. Weigh butter and flour into TM bowl and Turbo pulse for 2 seconds to cut the butter into the flour.
Add egg, milk and any other ingredients and knead 20 seconds/Dough setting. Scrape sides of bowl and knead again 10 seconds/Dough setting .
Turn your TM bowl upside down on a floured work surface, release the base and allow the weight of the dough to pull the blade out. Carefully remove the blade from the dough and set aside. Gently pat the dough into a thick round and use a biscuit cutter, a cup, a clean tuna tin or a glass to cut out your scones and then place them on a floured or paper-lined baking tray.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes/210° C or until scones are just golden brown. Remove the baking tray from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Cover your scones with some kitchen roll and a tea towel to keep them moist as they cool. Serve warm or cool.

Get creative Scones are hugely versatile and suit all sorts of occasions and taste combinations. You can make them “normal” sized for a sweet or savoury afternoon tea, or make small, bite-sized scones for a cocktail party, a “café gourmand” or just a quick bite. Here are a few thoughts:
Classic dried fruit scones – raisins, sultanas, currants, chopped dates, dried cranberries, dried apricots
Not-so-classic dried fruit scones – dehydrated apple, pear, peach or other fruit
Savoury sconesGrated cheese – cheddar, Swiss, parmesan Crumbled cheese – blue, Roquefort, goat
Herb scones – basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, etc. Try chive scones with smoked salmon, yum, yum!
Pesto scones – add up to 1 Tbsp Thermomix pesto (//www.whyisthereair.com/2011/05/25/green-pizza/) and a bit less milk
Italian scones – chopped sundried tomatoes and oregano or herbes de provence
Spanish scones – small chunks of Chorizo and grated Manchego cheese
Seedy scones – sunflower seeds, chia seeds, linseeds, etc
