First, I sifted 8oz self raising flour into a large mixing bowl
Then chopped 2oz butter into small cubes
I rubbed the butter into the flour, until it resembled fine breadcrumbs.
Mind you don't get any flour on your nose, I always manage to avoid such embarrassing things happening to me!
The bears like fruit in their scones, so, along with 2oz caster sugar, I added two good paws full of mixed fruit. I then added 1/4 pint of milk and mixed until I achieved a dough like texture (my scone mix that is, not me, although I guess with all this baking I may start to have a dough like texture!)
I floured my work surface, then patted my dough into a round, and cut out some giant scones.
I like watching my scones bake, and anyway, food has been known to disappear straight from the oven if not watched!
I baked my scones for 12 minutes, and they came out golden brown and ready for cream and jam. Mmm mmm.
With love from the bears.
