    About this recipe: These pretty scones are very moist and flavourful, tasty slathered with butter, honey or jam... Great for using up leftover mashed potato.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • 250g plain flour
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 50g cold butter or margarine
    • 200g mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
    • 80ml milk
    • 1 egg

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
    2. Combine potatoes, milk and egg; stir into the crumb mixture until a soft dough forms. Turn onto a floured surface; knead gently 10-12 minutes or until no longer sticky.
    3. Gently pat or roll dough into a 23cm circle about 2cm thick. Cut into 10-12 wedges. Separate wedges and place on an ungreased baking tray. Bake at 200 C / Gas 6 for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown.

    Lovely! and really easy to make, very soft and moist and delicious with jam or with something savoury - will definitely make again. I didn't need any milk but might do next time depending on the variety of potato. - 18 Apr 2015
