Scones are preferred small breads for English High Tea and are made of flour,cold butter,sugar (optional) and has baking powder as leavening agent.There are sweet scones which also fall under cakes or even savoury scones with veggies and spices.These are simple scones made of cream & candied ginger which I adapted from here.Ingredients:
White Whole Wheat Flour: 1 cup and 2 tbsp
Cold Unsalted Butter: 4 tbsp
Baking Powder: 1.5 tsp
Candied Ginger: 1/4 cup chopped
Orange Zest: 1-2 tbsp
Heavy Cream: 6 tbsp + 1-2 tbsp for brushing the tops
In my excitment,I patted the dough into a 1/4 inch disc.So my scones look thin.
Place the circles 1 inch apart on a greased or lined baking sheet.Brush the top with cream
