  • 3 Cups Flour
  • 6 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 75g Butter
  • 1 to 1 1/2 Cups Milk
  • ~1/4 Milk For Brush Over The Top Of The Scones

Getting Right Into It

For starting off lets turn the oven on to 220°C or 428°F bake or fan-bake.

The One Bowl

Grab the sieve and in the bowl sift in the flour, baking powder and salt. You don’t have to make sure that it looks perfect just all in the bowl.

If you don’t have a sieve just use a whisk as that’ll do the same thing.

The Butter

Now we add the butter to the mix and turn the flowery mixture into a a bread crumble looking mixture.

You can use a knife for this but it’s easier to use your hands when trying to make it bread crumby.

Milking It

For it to be combine properly we then add the milk to the mixture and cut it all together. Just make sure that you don’t over do it as this could lead to having tough scones.

Turning It Out

Either in the bowl, on floured surface or baking paper kneed the dough only slightly and then turning it out onto the tray if you’ve not already done that and press it out until it’s roughly 3cm thick.

At this stage you’ll divide the dough into roughly 11 pieces along with making sure there’s room for them to expand while baking.

Wash & Bake

Now grab some milk and brush it over the scones. Then we’ll put them in the oven for 10 minutes of until golden brown. Then once down you can do what you would like with them.

Completed Your First Batch Of Scones

Congratulations you’ve baked your very first batch of scones now you can bake any variety you like. This can be Cheese, Date, Orange or anything else just give it a go and see how it all turns out but if your doing plain don’t forget the raspberry jam and cream.

About The Kitchen Gamer

Hello I'm Peter otherwise known as The Kitchen Gamer. I'm based in New Zealand (A small country at the bottom of the world which no one seems to know about) and I'm passionate about Baking/Cooking along with Gaming. I thought why not bring the two together and do a channel where both live side by side so The Kitchen Gamer was born. I bring recipes that I love so I can encourage you to make them and possibly try them or try out gaming or the other way around. You'll see from time to time food cross from the Gaming world into the Real World as I try and make them delectable to eat and easy to make and I can't wait to show everyone what I made.
