Butter Milk Scones

A few weeks ago I had a rare day off and as I was awake bright and early I decided to bake a batch of scones. As there was some leftover buttermilk in the fridge from the upside down pear and ginger cakes I decided to bake some buttermilk scones.

The keys to making light fluffy scones are having a light hand with the dough; making sure each scone is about 2 cms (1 inch) high; keeping the scones close together on the baking tray before baking the scones in a very hot oven and then once the scones are cooked, wrapping them in a clean tea towel.

Scones don't keep well so serve them as soon as possible with your choice of butter, cream or ricotta and jam accompanied by a nice, strong cup of tea. That's what I had for my breakfast on that particular day,
