Scones using only 2.5 ingedients
This recipe courtesy of Kylie Evans at Biotext. May need to try it a few times to get the knack.
First, preheat oven to about 200oC and line a couple of baking trays with paper.
You will need:
• some volume of self-raising flour (a couple of cups)
• half that volume of thickened cream.
Combine flour and cream in a bowl, mixing with a bread and butter knife until combined. The less mixing the better.
The half an ingredient: If any dry material is left (say as crumbs in the bottom of the bowl) use a little milk just to add liquid. Mixture should not be sticky.
Use your hands to press out the dough into slabs about an inch thick. Use a cutter (about 1.5 inches across) to cut out the scones.
Bake for 10 minutes, maybe 12.
