with some delicious cherry scones. Don't forget the cream and jam!
You will need:
450g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g cold butter, diced
2 tbsp caster sugar
284ml pot buttermilk
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
100g glacé cherries, chopped
clotted cream and cherry or strawberry jam, to serve
Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put the flour, ½ tsp salt, bicarb and butter into a bowl and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix in the sugar.
Quickly mix in the buttermilk, a splash of milk, vanilla and cherries and bring together to form a soft dough. Press out onto a lightly floured surface, to about 3cm thick. Cut out with 5cm cutters.
Transfer to a lightly floured baking sheet, brush with the remaining milk and bake for 12-15 mins until golden and well risen. Serve with clotted cream and jam.
Grab a cup of tea, put your feet up and enjoy!
