I went to Causey farm for my hen and we had gorgeous scones with tea at the end of our day there. Here is the recipe! It looks very easy! I might give them a try tonight! http://www.causey.ie/recipes/scones.php

I always use the Darina Allen recipe for sweet scones: 900g plain flour 50g castor sugar 3heaped teaspoons of baking powder 175g butter 3 eggs 425ml milk (this makes about 18-20 scones so I usually half it for what I'd need) Sieve all dry ingredients & rub in the butter. Whisk the eggs with milk, make a well in the centre & mix together. Roll out to about 2.5cm thick & cut with a scone cutter. Brush the tops with egg wash & I usually drizzle with a little bit of granulated sugar also. Cook in the oven (250degrees) for about 10-12 mins. Eat & enjoy!!!

This is mine.: One lb of plain flour 2 oz butter or margarine 1-2 tablespoonfuls caster sugar 4 oz raisins One level teaspoonful of baking soda One egg, lightly beaten pinch of salt About half a pint of milk Sieve th flour with the salt and baking soda, cut and rub in the fat, add the sugar and raisins. Add the egg and buttermilk to give a soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured board, roll out a good 3/4" thick, cut with3" scone cutter and bake in a hot oven (185 C fan oven) for about 20 minutes. This makes approx 12 scones. This could also be bake as bread . It will take about 35 to 40 minutes this way.

I love baking and have used loads of different recipies for scones over the years and tbh I find I can't beat the convenience of the Odlums ones? Just add milk to the pack and bob's your uncle. No mess and they really are yummy!
