(Take out the cookie sheets) Preheat the oven to 200℃!! Try not to forget about the preheating, since the dough will be ready in no time...
In a bowl, combine the cake flour and baking powder, and stir with a whisk for about 20 strokes (instead of sifting the dry ingredients).
In a separate bowl, add the margarine and sugar and mix with a whisk.
Crack the egg into the bowl from Step 3 and mix it all together.
Add the dry ingredients from Step 2 into the Step 4 bowl and mix in a cutting motion with a rubber spatula until incorporated. It is fine if it looks crumbly.
Put the dough together, place it on top of a dusted parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Make the dough 2-2.5 cm thick with your hands, and cut with a knife into 4 equal pieces.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. If you are using a toaster oven, check it at 12-13 minutes after you start baking.
Once the surface is golden brown, it is done.
Serve it with whipped cream, sour cream, or jam if desired, and enjoy. I normally eat it with honey...
This scone has 1/2 of a chocolate bar. Add the coarsely chopped chocolate at Step 5 and mix. Do not over-mix it!
Story Behind this Recipe
I love scones, but all the recipes seem like too much work. I don't like my hands dirty, either. But I want to eat easy scones at home.
I am too lazy, so I am cutting the dough with a knife, but you can also cut it out with a dough cutter. The margarine and sugar only need to be roughly combined! Also, you can crack the egg straight into the bowl!
