Who doesn’t love some good ol’ Orange scones
Ever go to a blog for a recipe and get really annoyed at how much of the 10 minute read is actually a random and often uninteresting story before the author gets to the good stuff? Well, this won’t be one of those. Behold, a yummy orange scone recipe to bake as you self-quarantine or find ways to relax amidst the craziness of it all. Perfectly simple, ridiculously delicious.
Prep Time: 25 mins, including bake time.
Makes 10 scones
- 2,5 cups self-raising flour
- 1 pinch salt large
- 1 tbs butter
- 1 tbs sugar
- 1 tsp orange rind grated
- 1 orange juiced
- 1/2 cup milk
- Set oven to 230C and preheat.
- Zest the orange and put aside in a bowl.
- Sift flour and salt, then rub in butter. Add sugar and orange rind.
- Squeeze the juice from an orange, then measure 1/3 of a cup and add it to the milk.
- Stir this liquid into the dry ingredients, making a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface, knead lightly and roll into desired thickness. Don’t over-roll as they will be a little tougher than you need. Cut into 3-4cm rounds.
- Sprinkle tray lightly with a little flour, then place scones close together.
- Glaze scones lightly with a milk-wash if you’d like.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Enjoy with a spread of lightly salted butter or slightly sweetened whipped cream.
