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

2 eggs


Zest the lemon into a bowl. Add the buttermilk and eggs and mix well.

Mix the dry things together. I use a Chinese seize (one of those things that they use to coup things out of the wok) to mix all the ingredients together. Then add the marg to make a piecrust-like dough. I use an electric mixer. 


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.

The dough will be a bit sticky, but you should be able to get it out of the bowl. Don't overwork it. Sprinkle a bit of flour onto a surface and press out the dough about ¾" thick.  Use your cooker cutter, any shape, or a glass with straight sides, dipping it into flour between each use and put the scones onto a baking tray. Brush with a beaten egg.  Bake at 350 degrees for 16, 17, 18 minutes, depending on your oven.
