The smell of fresh baking…

Here are the scones I baked this evening, to use up some flour and margarine I had left. They smell amazing, and look so yummy that I don’t know if they’ll last the night!

The recipe is really simple, adapted from Delia Smith, and here it is if anyone wants to try it. These quantities make 6 scones, but you can double it if you have a bigger family than I do.

4oz self-raising flour
3/4 oz margarine

Sift the flour and rub in the margarine until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add a large teaspoon of caster sugar, and mix in milk to make a smooth dough. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it’s about 2cm thick, and then cut rounds. Brush the tops with milk to make them golden, and bake on Gas Mark 7 for 15 minutes (ish). Enjoy!
