We have added a little twist to our usual Cornish delight. We have added Earl Grey to really enhance your scones. Follow this simple recipe and fill your kitchen with the beautiful smell of warm scones and Earl Grey. The best part about these scones, you can serve them with all types of jams and conserves! But make sure you do it the Cornish way with the clotted cream on top!
Sieve flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a bowl.
Open two tea bags of Earl Grey and add to the mixture.
Using just your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it is no longer visible.
Add the milk and mix well. Once it starts to come together, turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead gently until it forms a smooth, soft dough.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees /Gas Mark 6.
Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2.5 cm thick and cut into rounds with a 5cm cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
For the egg wash, beat the egg in a small bowl and brush the tops of the scones twice.
Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes. Do not over-bake them or they will be dry.
Serve them warm with Cornish clotted cream and a jam or conserve of your choice, we used orange marmalade!
