When I was in London for business last week, a typical British Tea Time was not missing. And so I sat on a sunny Sunday with two colleagues in the beautiful garden of a great hotel in Kensington and enjoyed the 5 o'clock tea time with freshly baked, fragrant scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of tea. Gorgeous! I've always thought of scones as a boring pastry and wondered about the variety of recipes until now, for the first time, I consciously perceived scones like this for the first time. I simply underestimated these little delicacies. That's why I have now done it myself once and devised a suitable for me scones recipe that gets by without any additives or flavors. Sure, there are tons of scones, but I wanted to be simple and classic. Scones Warm slightly 150 ml of milk with 50 g of butter until the butter in the milk has melted.

British Tea Time: scones

Of course, when I was in London for business last week, a typical British Tea Time was a must.
And so I sat on a very sunny Sunday with two colleagues in the beautiful garden of a great Kensington hotel and enjoyed it the 5 o'clock tea time with freshly baked, fragrant scones, clotted cream, strawberry jam and a pot of tea. Gorgeous!

Scones I've always thought of a boring pastry and wondered about the variety of recipes until I have now consciously perceived such scones for the first time. I have simply underestimated these little delicacies.
That's why I've done it myself now and devised a suitable for me scones recipe that gets by without any additives or flavors. Of course, there are tons of scones, but I wanted a simple and classic one.

150 ml of milk along with Heat 50 g of butter lightly until the butter in the milk has melted.
300 g of flour with 1 pinch of salt Mix buffalo tartar powder (9 g) and 1/2 tsp soda 1/2 tbsp. Put the milk mixture in a large bowl and knead the flour mixture only briefly (do not stir too long). The dough may be sticky.
Make the whole either into a flat circle and cut off piecemeal 6 parts or shape 6 coarse balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. The whole thing can also look a bit unclean. I also beat the dough earlier.
Bake for about 15 minutes at 200 ° C top and bottom heat (170 ° C convection).
Let cool briefly and best still slightly warm with butter or clotted cream and jam.
This fits English Breakfast or some other tea.
Of course I forgot to bring clotted cream and I have not made it to the British Shop yet had, had to step in with me créme double, but which does not rankommt on original clotted cream. And that's one of the few things that comes with so much effort that I do not do it myself.

Scones are a super easy and very tasty thing that's also made quick for guests.
