Scones with Pumpkin Citrus Marmalade

There is nothing better than home-made scones fresh from the oven, served with whipping cream and marmalade, especially Devagi Pumpkin Citrus Marmalade. These scones have a crisp exterior with an interior that is light and fluffy with a rich buttery taste. The added bonus is how simple they are to make!

Makes:  6

350 g self-raising flour, plus more for dusting

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

100 g cold butter, cut into cubes

40 g caster sugar

100 g cold milk

50 g natural yoghurt, whisked till smooth

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 beaten egg + 1 tablespoon water, to glaze

Devagi Pumpkin Citrus Marmalade and whipped cream, to serve

METHOD

  1. Heat oven to 200 C. Place a baking tray in it and heat it up.
  2. Sift flour, salt and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
  3. Add in the butter. Rub in with your fingers until the mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in the sugar.
  4. Make a well in the flour mixture and then add the milk, yoghurt and vanilla extract. Combine quickly with a palette knife.
  5. Dust some flour onto the work surface and place the dough on it.
  6. Dust your hands with flour and then gently knead the dough till it is smooth.
  7. Shape into 3-4 cm thick roll.
  8. Take a 5 cm cutter and dip it into some flour. Using the cutter, cut out 6-8 scones.   Brush the tops with beaten egg. Carefully place on the hot baking tray.
  9. Bake for 10 minutes or until the scones rise and are golden on the top.
  10. Serve warm or cooled on the day of baking, topped generously with Devagi Pumpkin Citrus Marmalade and cream.
