Buttermilk scones

These are so easy (they have never failed) and so delicious (everybody loved them on Saturday). Takes about 5 mins to whip up a batch and they’re at their most delicious straight out of the oven. And for some reason everybody thinks you’re totally amazing for cooking scones yourself. Bonus!

450g sr flour
1 tsp bicarb
100g butter
2 tbsp caster sugar (i used granulated)
284ml buttermilk (I use normal milk, soured with a few shakes of lemon juice and left out for 5 mins. It’s cheaper and a great way to use up milk!)
About 100g dried fruit/ glacé cherries

Put flour, bicarb, 1/2 tsp salt, and butter in a bowl
Rub in with fingertips
Stir in the sugar
Quickly add the buttermilk and fruit and bring together into a dough
Take handfuls of mixture and place on a lined baking tray (makes about 12 I think)
Bake at 220 for 12-15 mins

These don’t last well so freeze what you can’t use. Recipes always talk about rolling out and cutting. Good luck with that, my dough is nowhere near the consistency to do that!
