These scone recipe is from my friend Ruth T. R.
It is just a perfect recipe that turns out always so delicious. Thanks Ruth for sharing with me your recipe and also your friendship !
3/4 cups buttermilk or plain yogurt
2 3/4 cup flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup of chopped cranberries (fresh, frozen) I use dried
1/2 cup sugar (I put 1/4 cup)
rind of 1 orange
1 egg yolk + 1 tablespoon of water
icing sugar to serve
1.Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C)
I never buy buttermilk. I make it so here is the secret. Take 3/4 cup of milk and add one tablespoon of white vinegar.
7. Add an egg & water wash on each scone to make a beautiful color. Bake !
8. ET voilà – How to serve it. Of course with a little cup of coffee and sprinkle on top some icing sugar to have this result.
Bon appétit !!
