We all love the classic scone but have you tried a Cornish split? Much like a sweet bread this bun is a wonderful alternative to a scone with Jam and clotted cream but it’s is also served with golden syrup and Rodda’s clotted cream to make “Thunder and Lightning”
First, mix the yeast and sugar together until liquid and then add to the warm milk.
Next, sieve together the flour and salt and then rub in the butter.
Add sufficient liquid to make a workable dough. Knead well, then set aside and allow to prove until it has doubled in size.
Knead again, then form your dough into rolls or buns and place on a floured baking sheet.
Leave to prove once more in a warm place until they have doubled in size again.
Finally, place in a pre-heated oven and bake at 175°C for twenty minutes.
Serve warm with homemade strawberry jam and lashings of Cornish clotted cream!
