Easy scone recipe.

Sometimes you just need something sweet ,but not cake or chocolate.

At times like this I whip up a batch of homemade scones,from a recipe I developed several years ago.

My scones have Greek yogurt and vegetable oil as ingredients which is quite unusual.

This makes for a moist scone with lower saturated fat than normal .

What you need

1lb self raising flour

4oz sugar

1 beaten egg

4  heaped tablespoons Greek yogurt

3oz vegetable oil

What you do

Preheat your oven to gas 7/220c

In a jug whisk the oil,egg and yogurt together

In a large bowl mix the flour and sugar

Stir the oil mixture into the flour  with a spatula ,until it starts to form a dough.

On a floured surface knead the dough until smooth

Cut out 7 or 8 scones with a fluted cutter

Place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment

Brush the tops with a little milk

Bake until golden,risen and a skewer into the centre comes out clean(approx. 15 to 20 mins)

Remove from the oven and place the scones on a wire cooling tray,covered with a clean tea towel.

Leave to cool slightly,serve with butter and jam. Enjoy.
