By seeing through the photos scones on pinterest and instagram . I had one wish, test a recipe. Today, it’s done. I was amazed at the simplicity that I had to achieve them. I tried some time ago to make a brioche but the result was not really conclusive. I was afraid that my scones will not be very good, they do not rise or they lack taste. Well no. They were very good! I am especially proud to have concocted my own recipe.
These scones are perfect for a Sunday morning. Accompanied it with jam (here is that of my grandmother) or a little butter. In England, they put whipped cream but it’s a little heavy for my taste.
You can also make variations in this recipe, I put the vanilla extract for it to have a little more flavor but it’s still a “nature” recipe . You can add raisins, for example, it is often what is proposed.
For 10 scones
Preparation time : 20 minutes / Cooking time : 15 minutes
What you will need :
- 2 cup (250g) flour
- 2 tbsp brown sugar (+ 1 tsp to decorate)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup (90g) soft butter cut into cubes
- 1 egg (+ 1 egg yolk for browning)
- 2 tbsp Greek Yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 . Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Mix in a bowl the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Add the butter and knead without coming to a totally smooth.
3. Add the egg and knead a little, then add the Greek yogurt and vanilla extract. You can now mix well to get a smooth paste.
4. On a work surface, sprinkle a little flour. Place the dough and flatten it by hand so that it is about 2 cm thick. Using a cookie cutter (as you wish) as here, make the scones.
5. Spread them on a baking tray covered with baking paper. With a kitchen brush, brush them with egg yolk and sprinkle brown sugar on top. Bake at 180°C for 15 minutes.
