Scones

  • 450g plain white flour (siktet hvetemel)
  • 5ml (1 level teaspoon) salt
  • 30ml (6 level teaspoons) baking powder (bakepulver)
  • 80g butter (smør)
  • 300ml milk
  • milk to glaze

 

Method

  1. Preheat a large baking sheet in the oven.
  2. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Add the butter and rub in until there are no large lumps and the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  4. Make a well in the centre and add the milk. Using a round ended knife, stir the mixture, then using your (floured) hands, bring it together into a soft dough.
  5. Knead lightly to remove any cracks, then roll out on a floured surface until it is approximately 2cm thick.
  6. Cut into rounds with a cutter, place on the warmed baking sheet.
  7. Brush the tops with milk and bake for 8-10 minutes at 230°C near the top of the oven.
  8. Cool on a rack.
