Fluffy Buttermilk Sultana Scones

I use to make the scones my mummy taught me.
with 7-up and cream.
but I really wanted to try those that are made using buttermilk. (:
saw a few recipes. but decided to use the one I saw on Kitchenwench
been reading her blog lately.
and she is so inspiring! hehe
and she teaches how to make all the korean yums.
so I was jus addicted. haha.

anyways. the scones came out alright.
though there is definitely room for improvement.
like the shape of the scones and stuff.
but it was super YUM! hehe
really light
and definitely fluffy! hee

absolutely loved it!
I didn’t even need to eat it with cream
just jam and it was awesome enough. hehe

though I couldn’t get them in the nice scone shape.
cause it was stickier than I thought it would be.
so I just scoop and plop! haha.
that’s why the scone was unevenly shaped.
i kinda like it this way.
what do u think? hehe
rustic!

Ingredients :

2 cups of self-raising flour
25g caster sugar
Pinch of salt
80g cold butter, cubed
100g sultanas
1 cup / 250ml buttermilk

Steps :

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C and line a baking tray with some baking paper,
then liberally dust with flour and set aside.

2. Sift together all the dry ingredients (both flours, sugar and salt),
then rub in the cold butter with your fingertips till the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
Add the dried fruit and toss well so it’s well coated.

3. Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture,
then pour in the buttermilk and quickly stir together till it holds together,
then tip onto a floured chopping board and knead till just combined.

4. As my mixture was stickier than it was suppose to be,
I plopped heaps tablespoons of mixture onto the baking tray.
(If you got your dough nice and dry and easy to roll out,
Pat the dough about 4-5cm flat,
then dip a round cutter into some flour and stamp out the scones,
carefully placing the scones closely together on the prepared baking tray.)

5. Lightly dust the tops with flour, then bake for 20 minutes,
or till the scones are golden and sound hollow when lightly tapped on the top.
Remove the tray from the oven and tightly wrap a clean tea towel around it for 5 minutes
before serving with some homemade strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream!

Fluffy Buttermilk Sultana Scones. DONE!

Enjoy everyone! (:
