Congrats Spain! World Cup is over for another 4 years. Why is it only every 4 years? Anyway, on to baking.
I bring you the rustic scone. I call it that because it looks a little more casual and "textured" than your regular scone (which I've yet to master, hence the "rustic" version). Having said that, it's pretty tasty and perfect to take on a camping trip, or to sit at the park and watch an impromptu game of cricket or football.
Rustic Scones - makes 18-20
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 oz/90g cold butter
1/4 cup berry sugar (or caster sugar)
1/2 cup chopped dried peaches
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup chopped dates
1 lightly beaten egg
1/2 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350f/180c. Mix the flour, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Rub the butter in with your fingers, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the sugar, peaches, almonds and dates and combine. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, then add the egg and
milk mixture and stir until well combined. Place tablespoons of the mixture on a baking sheet lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 17-20 minutes or until golden. Try them warm with a little butter!
