I didn’t know about the great scone debate until recently (sorry for living under a rock). How someone says scone is apparently how to know if you’re secretly from hell or not. This, and my actual love for scones has inspired me to make two scone recipes; one now, one later when I can get back to my room and grab it. This one, written on Micky Mouse stationary, is from my uncle.
260g of flour
70g of sugar
10g of baking powder
75g of unsalted butter
1 tsp of vanilla
120ml of cream
Optional: blueberries, currants, chocolate chips, whatever you’d like! Eyeball it, I don’t know how many add-ons you enjoy…
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into pats, then with a pastry cutter or two knives combine it in until coarse, like chunky sand (I know, not a very appealing description, but my other ideas were worse.) In a separate, small bowl, pop the egg yolk and fork the egg together a little bit, before mixing that, the cream and vanilla into the dry mixture until moistened. (If you have optional ingredients, dump them in now!) On a well-floured baking sheet, kneed. With a cup or a pastry cutter, cut out little scones! Alternatively, my uncle makes square ones and then cuts them in half. Bake at 190º for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
I like to half or double this recipe. I never seem to just make it as it is. I encourage you to try it!
Bonus: the OG recipe, written with love; the same love I give to you!
Let me know, what do you want to eat? Otherwise, join me next time for the rice pudding that cured me of all sadness (legally this is a joke).
