Good morning! Today I bring you my orange scones. This recipe is super easy and it makes the most delicious scones. You'll want to make them all the time after trying them once (trust me, I went through a scone phase).
For this recipe, you will need:
2 cups of flour
1/3 cup of sugar (plus 2 tbsp for sprinkling)
1.5 tsp of baking powder
A pinch of salt
8 tbsp of butter
Zest and juice of one orange
1/2 cup of milk
To start, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Mix together your milk and egg thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Grate the butter into the dry ingredients, and combine until it becomes like sand.
Add the zest and juice of one orange, and mix well.
Stir in the milk mixture, and combine until a dough is formed.
On a floured surface, form the dough into one flat circle round, or two depending on the size of scone you prefer. I like a medium size which means I can get 16 scones out of two rounds. Cut into triangles, sprinkle a little sugar on the top, and pop in the oven for 15 minutes. The scones will be perfectly golden brown.
