Cherry scones

This weekend I got some dessert cravings. Decided to make some scones, filled with red cherries, inspired by a recipe from BBC Food.

I found a basic recipe on BBC Food, which by the way is a nice resource for inspiration. I decided to make them a bit sweeter and used cherries as a filling. Together with some jam and cream they tasted great.

But there are still some things which can be improved. I think the texture can be a bit better. Next time I’m gonna use more milk.

Cherry scones

Ingredients (10 scones)

450 grams self-raising flower
1 tbsp baking powder
100 grams butter
1 egg
5 tbsp milk
100 grams cherries


Put the flower, baking powder & butter in a food processor and mix it until you get kind of a crumble. Whisk the egg and add it to the mixture together with the milk & cherries. Knead the mixture until you have a dough of your likings.

Cut the dough into 10 even pieces and bake them in a oven of 200 degrees celcius for about 15 minutes. I served them with crème fraîche & blackberry jam.
