I think I've put this on here in the past. There are many, many recipes out there for scones and I have tried many. However, the ones I remember from long ago were soft and fluffy with a sharp under taste and they sort of stuck to the roof of your mouth. They weren't like cakes and every recipe I've tried turns out like cake. I love to make these type of scones not cakes and if anyone has the recipe, I'd appreciate it
8 oz self raising flour 2 oz butter 2 oz sugar 250 ml plain yogurt.
Rub butter into flour to form breadcrumb texture. Add sugar and enough yogurt to form a soft dough. You may not need all the yogurt. Brush tops with egg wash and bake in a hot oven until well risen and golden on the top.
I put the zest of half a lemon in mine, or you could put in some dried fruit, or fresh blueberries. Wherever takes your fancy.
