Makes 8-10 Cook: 60 min

Ingredients

Flour 200g
Baking powder 8g
Unsalted butter 60g
Salt 1g (a pinch)
Caster sugar 10g
Whipping cream 110-120g
Bacon 70-80g
Black pepper 2g

Method

1
Sift the flour and baking powder together in a bowl.
2
Add the salt, sugar and black pepper.
3
Add the chilled butter and crumble it in, mixing with the dry ingredients. Continue crumbling until it becomes nice and smooth.
4
Spread out the bacon on some kitchen paper and microwave for 1 minute (don't allow it to go crispy), then shred as finely as possible.
5
Add the bacon to the bowl at Step 3.
6
Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add the whipping cream. Mix with a scraper but don't knead it.
7
Simply cut the mixture in two, press and repeat several times. You will soon end up with a smooth dough.
8
Wrap the dough in cling film and flatten with a rolling pin to a thickness of 2cm. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
9
Cut out scones from the dough using a cutter. Use any leftover dough to flatten and cut out more until it's finished.
10
Bake in an oven 180 ℃ for 15 to 20 minutes.

Tips & Note

● To make nice light scones, avoid forming gluten. At Steps ⑥ and ⑦ don't knead the dough, use a scraper.
