International Scone Week – 2013

Thanks to Celia at fig jam and lime cordial who reminds us about this event. Go to her blog to see more scone results.

This year I have made Ginger Scones.Ginger SconesI flavoured the mixture with ginger sauce and chopped glace ginger.

I served them with natural yoghurt mixed with a little lemon curd. Spread with butter suited them as well.

Ginger Scones with lemon curd yoghurtI prefer traditional plain scones but these were quite enjoyable. They all got eaten !

The recipe is basically a fruit scone mixture using ginger instead of sultanas etc. Next time I would use more ginger sauce and more ginger pieces, if I can stop eating the ginger before it gets to the bowl. Here is the recipe:

Ginger Scones

1/3 cup glace ginger, chopped

1tbs ginger sauce (or sugar)

2 cups self-raising flour

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbs butter

1 egg

2/3 cup milk

1. Preheat oven to 230c.

2. Grease an oven slide or pan, dust with flour.

3. Sift flour and salt.

4. Rub in butter.

5. Add syrup and ginger pieces.

6. Beat egg and add to the milk, leaving a little milk for glazing.

7. Pour into dry ingredients and make a moist dough.

8.Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly.

9. Roll to 1 -2 cm thick.

10. Cut into rounds and glaze with a little milk.

11. Place on slide and bake for about 12 minutes.

  1. I made ginger scones too! I love the idea of serving them with a little lemon curd, that sounds fabulous. All these scone recipes are inspiring me to bake a little more, just need the weather to cooperate as we are still in summer here. 🙂
