Kiddisafe Bake-Off: WEEK 2

Last week was a warm up exercise… we’re turning it up a notch this week!

Week 2: Scones

These melt-in-your mouth scones are heavenly, bitesized chunks meant to create cravings.

Having learnt from Nadiya Bakes that yogurt is the ingredient that creates a tangy flavour and keeps your bakes moist, I for one am looking forward to making these!

Now I’d like to say this recipe is about foolproof but feel free to prove us wrong!

Have a try and let us know how many you eat in one sitting…

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of cake flour
  • 5 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 125g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C.
  2. In a large bowl add in your cake flour with baking powder and icing sugar. Slice your butter into small chunks and throw into the powdered ingredients.
  3. Time to get that elbow grease in! Mix and form into a crumbly dough with your hands.
  4. In a separate bowl beat one egg. Add in your milk and yogurt, stirring well. Add in the vanilla.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into the crumbly dough and mix again! Note: There is no need for kneading today!
  6. Once the dough is formed, sprinkle some flour onto a flat surface and flatten your dough against it.
  7. Now the fun part – using a scone cutter (or any shaped cutter) lay out your shapes onto a lined baking tray.
  8. Brush the top of each scone shape with egg, and voila! Time to bake in the oven.
  9. Keep a close eye on the scones as we’re relying on you to make the call and pull them out once golden brown.
