made some superb lemon scones this evening with self raising flour, milk, and farmhouse butter.  They were light and very delicious. I tend not to roll them too much so that they are light.  A bero book tip not to roll them too much then they turn out light and fluffy.  Made with lemon rind and lemon juice.  I love baking scones.

H​ello,  Thanks will bear that in mind.  Do you bake scones at all?  What kind do you bake?  Potato, fruit, lemon, plain, drop or cherry ones?  I like rock buns as well made with herbs.

I do bake scones!! I have baked all of the ones listed and more. I just had to make some rock cakes for a friend of mine from the Cumbria area although he likes them made with the dried fruit and peel. I also made some cast iron scones the other day for my sister while camping. I make gluten free ones for me as I have to limit my grain intake.

What is your most favourite scone of all time? Mine is a fresh blueberry scone!

 I love lemon scones as light and fluffy and very refreshing.  I do make blueberry ones though and I think they are marvellous strange you should say that.  You sound a great cook.  I am afraid to say never heard of Cast Iron scones what do they consist of if I may ask?  Good to hear you made rock scones, yes dried fruit is a good way of making them.  Which cook books do you use and why?  Do you make up recipes?  I do sometimes the other day made yoghurt scones a bit heavy.  I think self raising flour for them is the best.  Which type of flour do you use may I ask?    I sometimes use bread flour.  I could say as a little joke here that once eaten they are scone!!!

I've never liked scones, I prefer muffins and you just gave me the idea to bake lemon muffins.  I don't even know if there is such a thing.

In the what's for dinner thread you said you were vegan but vegans don't use milk or butter.  Did you mean that you're vegetarian?

Hello there,

     Ok you have never liked scones that is a shame as my husband loves them.  I would say no such thing as a lemon muffin there are other kinds.  Glad I gave you an incite into another theme though good to be inventive.   I would say I am a vegetarian probably got that part wrong.

Hello there FrenchFries,

      Certainly be glad to be of assistance.  Here it is:-     Take one small bag of Tesco 40p Be-ro self raising flour.

      A  sprinkling of salt, one tsp of baking powder to help them to rise.

     One packet of Wykes farmhouse butter it is a small packet from the Co/op costing around 75p.

      A small canister of skimmed milk costing around 49p. 

       One large lemon.

      I put in the costs as I am on a low budget and this may help you to see not costly to make. 

      First heat the oven on 220oC, 425of, or mark 7 and grease a baking tray also flour it with some flour I usually knock the side of the tray with my wrist to make sure the flour spreads across the tray in an even way. 

       Mix the flour, salt,  and butter.  Rub in the butter gently with finger tips until fine breadcrumbs.  Then add the lemon rind using a grater also chop in half then put in the juice using a juicer.  Stir all this in using a wooden spoon.  Add the milk reservering a little for brushing the tops of the scones. 

        Knead lightly on a floured surface it says roll out but I tend to press it lightly as a scone dough should be soft and spongy and you should handle very lightly for best results.   Cut into rounds using a scone cutter.  Then if any trimmings left cut out more rounds.  Brush the tops with egg or milk that is left.  Bake for 10 minutes or until golden.  These scones are much paler in colour to the other scones.  The milk gives them a golden colouring. 

        May I thank you for showing a interest in my scones you are very welcome and I am thrilled to share this with you.  Happy scone baking.  Apron.

Yes plz I have not had much luck with scones and the measurements you have given are a puzzle can you convert the measures to metric as most of my baking is scaled out.
What is Tesco flour ?
Currently have a few pints of blueberries in the freezer and think they would be nice paired with the lemon.

apron apron it would be great if you would locate your recipes in the recipe forum.
Much easier to find without having to slog thru all of the scattered forums and posts that get search hits.
Thanks!

Dear Mimi,

     I am afraid that my scales are not in metric.  Tesco flour is a store in Scotland called Tesco where you can purchase self raising flour their's is called Tesco as the store is called Tesco.  Maybe you don't have Tesco where you are.  Actually you are lucky in not having them but their flour is cheap at 40p that is why I quoted them.

sorry missed out the measurements  the self raising flour is about 5 ounces of flour and the butter to use is the same.  The milk is small but only put in enough to make a soft dough with the lemon juice and rind.  Sorry.

Ok.
Since the entire bag is used look on it and put that amt in your recipe.
As it is I don 't have any idea how much flour to use.
You could repeat for the butter and milk as well.
The measures should be on the pkg just like the flour.
