Isn't that look so pretty when sandwich with cream and strawberry jam?
I like this ' Smiling ' result.
Added some raisin to the scones.
Finally I found the right recipe for this English scones. Right texture, not too dry, taste great and smell really good! Been testing out four different recipes till I came to this. Scones is one of the easiest pastry to make you can find among the others. It's always very comforting to eat scones especially during tea time. I love to sandwich it with rich double cream or clotted cream and strawberry jam. The combinations are just too hard to resist! Yes, I know it's also a sin full combination. But lives are short......
Made some for my son's teacher , who happen to love scones. So pleased to know she and her family enjoyed. However, I can never make the same scones as those selling in UK Marks & Spencer. They are so soft and the taste is something I could never forget and it seems to stay with me every time I think about it! As if I am tasting it.... My hubby will never fail to bring some back for me whenever he goes there.

I had problem with moderating comments, hence your comment on this scone recipe couldn't be displayed.
About the flour, you can use cake flour. I used norma plain flour in this recipe. Hope you will enjoy the scones! Now can get clotted cream from UK at Meidi-ya! What a great news isn't it? I have just bought a jar... Will make some scones soon. ;) do let me now how well you like it ok?
Hence, really thanks for clarifying as well as recommending where to get the clotted cream.
Yup, will let you know once I try out the recipe. :) but you will hv to wait a while... haha...
I couldnt get to a soft dough, it turned out like a muffin batter consistency. Not sure if it's because the milk was still cold when i added it in, or if my breadcrumb consistency is not correct. What might I have done wrong?
I suspect you may have over handle with the dough while mixing the milk in. Try using the scraper to mix/cut the ingredients to get that breadcrumb consistency? What yoiu want is a partial dry and wet dough. It's ok if you think it's not 'well blended'. I also used cold milk. So, don't think it's the cold milk's fault.
Do let me know how your next try ok? Hear from you soon. Happy BAking!!
