    Question In need of a TRUE British scone recipe.....

    I made a batch of scones today from a recipe from allrecipes.com and the only thing I did differently was use half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour....They taste fine, but they are the consistency of a soft sugar cookie or muffin..... Help!!!! Can any of you give me a good authentic British scone recipe????? I made some *fake* clotted cream to go with them...its really good, although I would n't know the difference, cause I have never had the real thing.....


    Thanks in advance.....

    try this:

    Ingredients
    225g/8oz self raising flour
    pinch of salt
    55g/2oz butter
    25g/1oz caster sugar
    150ml/5fl oz milk


    Method
    1. Heat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
    2. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.
    3. Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough.
    4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.
    5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
    6. Cool on a wire rack and serve with butter and good jam and maybe some clotted cream.

    Im not sure how to covert all the measurements into cups tho.

    Ok, I want to know what your "fake" clotted cream recipe is, because I can't imagine anything else coming close to the real thing. I hope you get to try it sometime.

    I also appreciate the recipe.

    Ok, Ceashels, here it is, but again, I would imagine it is sweeter than the *real* stuff:

    1 8oz pkg cream cheese
    1-3 tbsp white sugar
    1 pinch of salt
    1 cup heavy cream
    6-8 oz sour cream


    Mix all together till stiff peaks form. I used about 2 tbsps sugar, and Oh my, I could just eat this stuff out of the dish all by itself....

    If you do try it, let me know how close to the real thing it is , please......

    i call them S-cone's

    if you like them with cheese, try flattening the scone mix out evenly and adding cheese to the surface and roll up from one edge to form a sausage shape and just cut it into sections that way you get a cheese swirl thru out the scone
