Oaty scones

    30 min

    My best ever scone recipe. My scones normally fail. Not that they are inedible, just they are heavy and more pastry like than scone like. This time I was ad-libbing a recipe I remembered for a baking powder bread but I added too much butter and I ended up with scones, which were surprisingly scone like.

    Makes: 6 scones

    • 100g melted butter
    • 35g rolled oats, coarsely ground
    • 150g plain flour
    • 2 tablespoons wholemeal flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons milk

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Heat oven to 220 C / Gas 7.
    2. Melt butter. I put in a metal bowl in a sink of hot water, but any other way is fine.
    3. Sieve dry ingredients into bowl and mix, use fingers to evenly rub in butter through the dry ingredients.
    4. Add enough milk to form a stiff dough.
    5. Roll out until dough is 2cm thick and cut into 6 rectangles.
    6. Brush with water or milk and sprinkle with some oatmeal. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through.

    You can sprinkle with herbs before or instead of sprinkling with oats.

    I sprinkled with herbs that complimented the casserole I was serving the scones with.  -  11 Aug 2010
