When are scones served for dinner

Scones

It's teatime! The scones, popular in Great Britain, are made from flour and buttermilk, and baking powder is used as a raising agent. At tea time, scones are usually served warm with clotted cream (similar to our whipped cream), butter or jam (jam).

Batter for scones

The dough is prepared quickly. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder, add softened butter and milk and knead everything quickly. It is important to work quickly and only knead the dough briefly so that it does not become tough. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface, cut out circles with a glass and brush these with egg yolks whisked with water. Chill the circles for around 30 minutes so that the scones keep their shape while baking. Then bake to 200 degrees (gas 3, convection 180 degrees) on the 2nd rail from the bottom for 13-15 minutes.

Tip: Scones dough is easy to work with, so you don't need to refrigerate it before rolling it out. It is best to cover freshly baked scones with a cloth - the steam will keep the baked goods loose.

Scones: sweet and savory

Instead of cream, for example, vanilla scones with powdered sugar, smoothly stirred mascarpone and berries as well as cinnamon scones with crème fraîche and plum jam taste wonderful. A tasty, spicy variant is Cheddar Scones with Dip.
