One of my favorite things I ate for the first time in my life was when I travelled through Australia a few years ago and had scones for the first time. In Holland we never eat or make scones, I guess it’s something British right? Well, I really loved them and I always wanted to make them. So I did, last week.
I took a recipe I found on IG from Yvestown. Yvonne is a Dutch women who has an amazing house (check it out here) and creates the most delicious things in her kitchen. I’ve actually ordered her new book with breakfast recipes. Waiting for it to arrive!
What do you need for these scones?
- 400 grams of plain flower
- 25 grams of white caster sugar
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 50 grams of unsalted butter (soft)
- 250 ml of low fat yoghurt
- 200 grams of raisins
- 1 egg
How do you make scones?
Preheat your oven to 200 c
Then you mix the plain flower, white caster sugar, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt with each other.
Soften your butter and add this together with the raisins and yoghurt to the mixture.
Create a sticky dough!
When you have the sticky dough, place this on a well floured surface to create a piece of about 4 cm thick. Use a 6 cm scone cutter (or a glass like I did) to cut the scones.
Place them about 2 cm apart of each other on a baking tray with baking paper.
Beat your egg lightly and use it to brush the top of your scones.
Place the scones in the oven for about 12-14 minutes.
