These are easy scones that you can make in no time whenever you feel like having them. They're crispy on the outside, fluffy and moist on the inside. Serve with fillings or toppings of your choice.

Ingredients: 10 scones

A. Cake flour
200 g
A. Bread (strong) flour
50 g
A. Sugar
35 g
A. Salt
1/3 teaspoon
A. Baking powder
1 tablespoon
A. Butter
50 g (cut into 1cm dice)
B. Milk
50 g
B. Egg (1) + yogurt
110 g total
Milk (to glaze the scones)
as needed


1. Put all the A. ingredients in a food processor, and process for about 20 seconds until sandy in texture.
2. If you don't have a food processor, put the A. ingredients and the butter in a bowl, and mix together with your fingers while mashing the butter until the mixture is sandy. Work quickly so that the butter doesn't melt.
3. Transfer the combined butter and flour to a bowl, add the B. ingredients and fold together.
4. Work quickly, scooping up from the bottom. Be careful not the knead the dough.
5. When the dough has more or less come together as shown in the photo it's good. It will still be floury in spots.
6. Take the dough out onto a floured work surface, and bring it together with your hands. Use the flour to flatten the dough out and fold it into thirds, 3 times.
7. I flatten the dough with my hands, cut it into thirds with a knife and stack the cut pieces. Repeat 3 times. See the photos for steps 6 and 7.
8. Roll the dough 2.5cm thick, and cut it out. If you don't want to bother with a cutter, just cut the dough into pieces with a knife. If the cut sides are neat, the scones will rise neatly too.
9. Brush the tops with milk. Bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
10. Done.
11. I love splitting scones. They are not that sweet, so please enjoy topped with whatever you like.

Story Behind this Recipe

I aimed to emulate KFC's biscuits (scones), and after a lot of trial and error this is the recipe I've settled on. In the end they are different from the KFC version, but it's simpler and easier to eat than the version I was aiming for.
