Making Scones

We are learning to create complete sentences that contain detail.

How to make scones

Scones are an English type of bread which are very popular and they have been eaten for hundreds of years. The British upper class take their scones very seriously and follow rules about how to eat them. This recipe makes 6 small or 4 large scones.

Plain flour, for the dusting
1 ½ cups self raising flour
½ cup milk
40g butter

Wash your hands

Add the flour and butter into a big bowl. Rub it together and mix it and it will become like breadcrumbs

After add some milk slowly to not make it sticky

Then you knead the dough on a floured tray and make it into small balls.

Put the balls on a baking tray and make sure you don't touch them too much because it will make the scones tough to eat

Put the tray in the oven at 200 degrees celsius and then it will be ready to be eaten in 20-25  minute’s
