Devon Scones

I really love to eat scones, they always remind me of our Devon holidays. We often ate scones after a long walk along the sea. Missing Devon so badly, I tried out different scones recipes, but none of them satisfied me. Finally I stumbled over the National Trust Farmhouse Cookbook, which we bought at the beautiful Lanhydrock House, and found the perfect scones recipe: Devon Scones. For me it was the first one which was similar to the scones we ate in the UK and they don’t have the common soda after taste.

The English jam and the clotted cream I found in Zurich at a food stand in the marked hall “Viadukt”. I was so surprised that they sell clotted cream that I immediately had to buy one jar. (regardless of how overpriced it was ;-))

Devon Scones-The Farmhouse Cookbook

  • 250gr. plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp soda
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 30gr. butter
  • 200ml milk
  1. Sieve the dry ingredients together. Rub in the butter. Stir in the milk to make a soft, slightly sticky dought.
  2. Flour your hands and a work surface and press the dough together. Roll out to about 2cm thick and use a 5cm round cutter to cut scones. Place on a lightly floured baking tray and bake at 220°C for 10 minutes.

Enjoy!
