This is an old family recipe for slightly different but delicious scones. Just the job for a tasty afternoon snack.
1 medium egg
1 lvl tblsp goldensyrup
1 lb plain flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 heaped tsp cream of tartar
1 heaped tsp salt
Heat oven to highest temperature place large baking sheet inside
Melt butter and syrup.
Mix egg and buttermilk
Put dry ingredients in bowl
Add both wet mixtures to bowl
Stir with large metal spoon
This will produce a wet sticky mixture so you need to put lots of flour onto the work surface
Empty mix onto flour
Gently roll out to ¾ inch thick
Cut up to 16 pieces
Remove hot baking sheet from oven and place scones onto sheet
Put in oven for 7-8 mins until golden
Cool on wire rack
