About this recipe: Great with soup, these scones are savoury and taste great with a little butter or olive spread. Enjoy!
The amounts in this recipe are wrong. When I added the 175ml of milk the 'dough' was more like a soup!! Managed to rescue by adding another 125g flour and butter breadcrumb mix plus dried herbs, but the 'dough' was still too soft really. Anyhow the taste of the scones was outstanding, although the texture was not right. Will definately make again but will add more flour and much less milk!! - 16 Dec 2009
too much milk to flour by a long way! it was a sticky mess. I had to add more flour to get a decent dough. Also you need to double the recipe to make a decent amount of scones. ( I didn't bother with the onion. Maybe next time). Once I'd altered the amounts they came out ok. I see it wasn't just me. The other reviews say the same yet no one has bothered to alter the recipe. That's a pity. - 04 Apr 2015
Oh dear. Amandah1959 is spot on - the quantities are COMPLETELY wrong. Soup rolling was not easy. I too added extra flour to make it handleable....3 minutes to go in the overn, and I'll report back shortly. Needed an extra 5 minutes of cooking....still waiting... Dough not properly cooked, probably 'cos of the wetness. Putting them back in for another 5 mins.... So after 25 minutes of cooking, we have a result. Flavour pretty good, but poorly risen and still rather chewy. Basically, wouldn't use this recipe again. Sorry Kitty! - 29 Sep 2013
