Albion Manor Lemon and Cherry Scones
Albion Manor's Recipes
3 1/3 cups flour exactly (run a knife across the top of the coup to get a level measure)
½ cup sugar (a bit more is okay)
3 tsp baking powder (more or less, but I usually use a bit more)
¾ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
300 grams ( 10 ½ ounces or 1 ¼ cups) of really good quality margarine (or you can use butter, but we try to make healthy choices, don't we)
7/8 cups of buttermilk
zest from one large lemon
Zest the lemon into a bowl. Add the buttermilk and eggs and mix well.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Add one handful of dried sour cherries. Blend with a wooden spoon. Don’t work it too much, just enough to bring all the ingredients together.
