Sourdough Discard Plain Scones


Makes 12


For Brushing

  • Butter
  • Milk


1. Pre-heat oven to 220-240ºC.

2. Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda and butter in a bowl or stand mixer until the texture resembles crumble mix.

2. Add the sourdough starter and milk and slowly mix until combined.

3. Remove from bowl and press out onto a lightly floured surface to about 3cm thick.

4. Cut the dough into 6cm rounds and place on a baking tray.

5. Brush the tops with milk.

6. Bake for 14-16 mins or until golden brown.

7. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.

Note: For best results, chill the butter and sourdough starter (the rapid change in temperature to a very hot oven helps the scones to rise).
