I visited a friend that I have not seen for ages. She made bacon scones. I enjoyed the scones, so I asks her for the recipe. She said she got the recipe from another friend. She also change some of the ingredients to called it her own.
Anyway, she gave me the recipe. I too did change the ingredients to call my own. I run out of plain flour, so I use bread & pizza strong plain flour. I also added pizza shredded cheese. Then I bought chorizo as I like it a bit spicy as I am a chili lover.
Glad I did tried making scones and it did turned out great, delicious with margarine and a dollop of chili oil. Let’s bake!!!
1 1/2 c pizza shredded cheese
1/2 c chopped and cooked packet chorizo
6 Tbs olive oil spread
1/4 Tsp ginger powder
1/4 Tsp dried rosemary
1 Tbs baking powder
2 c plain flour plus 1 1/2 c bread & pizza strong plain flour
125 g copha butter, cubed & melted in microwave
1/4 c Olive oil
300 g sour cream
Prepare a baking tray by lining with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C.
Sift together both flours, ginger powder and baking powder; put into a food processor. Then add the dried rosemary. Pour in the melted butter, spread and oil. Blender to form the mixture into coarse crumbs. Empty into a medium bowl and fold in the cheese and chorizo, making sure all is evenly distributed. Form a well in the center of the mixture.
Using a bowl, whisk together the sour cream and egg. Pour egg/sour cream batter into the well of the flour mix. Using a wooden spoon or large fork, stir all until combined into a dough. Lightly dust a flat surface with flour.
Empty dough onto prepared surface and knead, about 10 to 12 turns about 8-10 minutes. Roll dough into flat mass that is 1/2 an inch thick. Cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. After all are cut, you should have 27 scones. Place all on prepared tray, fitting all 20 closely together but not touching. The other 7 use separate tray.
Spray with oil on top. Place scones in oven to bake for 15 minutes. They will be lightly golden on top and bottom when done. After baking, transfer scones to rack to cool. Serve with jam and whipped cream. I prefer to have with spread margarine and a dollop of chili oil. As it is savoury so make it spicier.
