    1. Preheat oven to 220 C / Gas 7. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
    2. Place flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl and rub in butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
    3. In a small bowl or measuring jug, use a fork to mix the egg, milk and treacle until well combined. Add to flour mixture to form a wet dough.
    4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, sprinkling more flour on top if needed to form a workable dough. Roll out to about 2 cm thick and stamp out rounds with a 5cm pastry cutter, kneading the remaining dough together to cut out more. Place on lined baking tray and bake for about 8-10 minutes.
    5. Sprinkle with caster sugar while still warm; set aside to cool.

    Hi , what am I doing wrong. Love treacle scones. "but they turn out flat despite having used baking powder. The mixture does seem quite wet too. Made a couple of times now with same results,? Any comments would be appreciated.  -  24 Nov 2017
