Scones with breakfast or tea in the afternoon are always a treat. They are easy and quick to make on a day off and once you've gotten your basic recipe down, it's easy to play around with different flavors. These are infused with tea and lemon zest!
For the recipe:
- 500 grams of flour
- 38 grams baking powder
- 75 grams sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 110 grams cold butter
- 350 grams heavy cream
- 10 grams Lady Grey loose tea
- zest from 1 lemon
Bring the heavy cream to a boil, then throw in the tea and let steep for 20 minutes.
In the meantime, sift all dry ingredients into the same bowl, then add lemon zest.
Cut the butter into cubes and combine with the dry ingredients by working the mixture with finger tips.
Strain the steeped heavy cream and add the liquid to your bowl, mix until just combined.
Flatten out the dough to about 2 inches thick and cut into triangles.
Brush the tops with heavy cream.
Bake in a 400F for around 15 minutes or until golden brown.
