Yoghurt Scones

Ingredients for 8 scones:

– 250 g plain flour (or 1/2 white, 1/2 whole meal)
– 1 tbsp butter, softened
– 1 tbsp sugar
– 1 egg
– 1 pkt baking powder
– 125 g pot yogurt
– 1 pinch of salt

Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the other ingredients and mix them until the dough forms a ball. Handle the dough as lightly as you can. Avoid overmixing, or the scones won’t be as tender.

Pat the dough into a flattish round, about 3 cm (a little over an inch) in thickness, and cut into eight wedges with a knife or a pastry cutter.

Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet and glaze them with milk. Bake for 15 minutes, until the top of the scones is set and lightly golden.
