Marion’s Fabulous Scones


Print:
4

Ingredients

12 piece(s)

for the scone dough

  • 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
5

Recipe's preparation

    make the scones
  1. 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.

  2. Add egg, milk and any other ingredients and knead 20 seconds/Dough setting. Scrape sides of bowl and knead again 10 seconds/Dough setting Dough mode.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

Tip

Don't have self-raising flour? Just add 1 or even 2 tablespoons of baking powder to your plain flour for the fluffiest scones ever!

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

What are your favourite scone combinations?

    Good flavour. Will not roll so thin next time as mine did not rise much. Took a lot longer to brown up, but every oven in different. Nice moist scone. Thank you. Dropped out of the thermomix perfectly. tmrc_emoticons.)

    Terrific recipe and method.

    I made cheese scones using tasty cheddar + cayenne. Blitz flour + butter + 120g cubed cheese. Add other ingredients + 1/2 tsp cayenne. Before baking, grate cheese over the top. Bake 15 min.

    Just made these for the third time, on this occasion cooking for hungry men on a cattle station. This time I used up leftover mashed pumpkin from dinner last night to make one batch and did a second batch with fruit. They loved both...between kids and men not one scone left! Fantastic recipe! Thank you.

Everybody loves them - nobody made a comment about not having my traditional scones. In fact they all raved about them. I will be using this recipe from now on.
