As already mentioned on Tuesday, today we show a simple recipe for scones: English tea rolls. They should not be missing from the High Tea and only have to be in the oven for 10 minutes. So really a lightning recipe and totally delicious!
For the dough of the scones you need:
200 g flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
50 g margarine
25 g sugar
4 tbsp raisins
50 ml milk
Preparation for approx. 10 to 12 scones:
First you put an egg into a measuring cup and add as much milk as you need to make 120 ml liquid. Whisk well!
Then mix the flour with the salt and the baking powder and put everything into a mixing bowl. The butter is nicely crushed with your fingers and stirred in.
Also add the egg-milk liquid. Keep some of it, however, to brush the scones afterwards.
Then knead the dough. It should not be sticky.
Add the raisins and spread well in the dough. Oops, we forgot all about that…but afterwards peeping into the dough also works quite well!
Now the dough can be rolled out for the scones. It should be about 2 cm thick.
Then remove the round slices (for example with a glass) and place them on a baking tray with baking paper.
Coat all slices with the egg and milk mixture and put the baking tray in the preheated oven.
Bake at 220° C for about 10 minutes.
The whole thing is served with clotted cream and jam.
Clotted Cream is a well-kept secret of the British. It’s hard to find in Germany or the Netherlands. We have tested a recipe that resembles this whipped cream-like treat.
For our Clotted Cream you need:
125 g cream fraiche
120 g mascarpone
Stir well. Done. It couldn’t be simpler!
Now just put on the tea and enjoy!
Enjoy your tea,
