Super Scones

We make these super scones at Bread Church every week and lots of people have asked for the recipe. So here we go!

Ingredients (makes around 16 medium scones)
700g self raising flour
300ml pot of double cream
330ml can of fizzy pop (e.g. lemonade)
Extra of your choice (traditionally sultanas or raisins)

Method
Mix the ‘extra’ into the flour
Make a well in the flour and pour in the cream
Pour the can of fizzy pop into the cream
Mix together until all the flour is incorporated but don’t over mix
Tip onto a well floured surface, gently flatten to about an inch and a half deep, make scones with a cutter
Place scones onto a non stick baking tray and brush with a little beaten egg or milk
Bake in a pre heated oven at 180C for about 20 minutes until the scones are golden brown

We have used lots of different flavours of fizzy pop and ‘extras’. As we think of new combinations we will add them to the website. In the meantime some of our favourites so far have been:
Coca cola & chocolate chips
Fanta & chocolate orange
Fanta & marmalade
Cherry & glace cherries
Ginger beer & crystallised ginger
Lemonade & Christmas Mincemeat (the Christmas Scone)
