Made these at 8.00 a.m. , for 8.30 a.m. Latin Breakfast Club at a friend's house...What a hard life these unschoolers live! Fruit, French toast, sausages, scones with jam/cream/spreads ~ and Latin ~and netball with friends.
Easy Scones ( so easy even I, the horrible cook, can make them)
Preheat oven to 200 Celsius. I actually did this! Woo hoo! Melt 30g butter. Meanwhile whisk one egg until fluffy. Hey, I found and used my whisk.
Combine egg and butter with 2 cups self raising flour and 3/4 cup milk. 'Course I used low fat milk..Mix to a soft dough, knead very lightly on a floured board, pat to to 2-3cm high shape-thing. Cut into rounds, place on a greased or floured tray, brush tops with milk, cook about 15 minutes. Me, upstairs, changing from workout gear into today's clothes, and yelling down to Thomas - "Did you hear the timer? Did you get the scones out? What, you didn't hear it? I heard it from up here! Get those scones out! Wrap 'em in a tea towel to keep 'em soft! "
So, that's how you make easy scones.
Best served hot.
Oh, and we tripled the recipe for our Latin Breakfast.
