I’m World famous in our house for collecting recipe books, files of recipes and magazines. I have an entire bookshelf, desk and bedside table full of them. It’s a problem, I know.
The thing is, there are very few recipes that I actually ever end up making. I intend to get round to them. Life just gets in the way.
Every now and again though, a recipe pops up that is too good to ignore. This is one of them.
Three Ingredient Scones
For Perfectly Fluffy Scones you will need:
- Self Raising Flour (this is the flour I use – and why)
- Butter and
- Plain, full cream yogurt
I use organic products, but opt for white flour instead of wholegrain for this recipe. I make up my own Self raising flour using Einkorn Flour (I LOVE, LOVE this flour) You can use Self Raising Wholegrain flour for a bit more of a rustic scone.
STEP ONE: Make up your dough.
Start by using your fingers to work the butter into the flour. You’re aiming for a mix that looks a little like fine breadcrumbs. Add the yogurt and mix to form a firm dough.
STEP 2: Roll out your dough and press out your circles.
Roll out your dough to a half inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to press out your scone circles. Make sure you dust the cutter well to prevent any sticking.
STEP 3: Bake and Serve
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes until light golden on the top. Serve with fresh cream and strawberries (or 100% fruit, no sugar added strawberry jam if not in season).
The Best Breakfast Scones (only three ingredients) with Strawberry Jam and Fresh Cream.
- 2 cups Self Raising Flour
- 200 g butter
- 3/4 cup plain yogurt
- Preheat oven to 170 degree Celsius or 320 degree Fahrenheit.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix flour and butter together with your fingers until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
- Add yogurt and mix until your dough is formed.
- On a floured surface, roll out dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out your Scone circles. I use a plastic cup to cut out shapes and aim for 8 scones per batch.
- Place on a oven tray and bake for 12 - 15 min or until tops are golden brown.
- Serve immediately with fresh cream and strawberry jam.
