When I was a kid, Saturday mornings were always filled with freshly baked goods for breakfast. Whether it was crumpets (with special small ones made just for Barbie), muffins or scones, my sister and I would sit in the kitchen watching my mom bake something delicious for us to smother in syrup, jam or nutella.
- 2 cups cake flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 60g butter, cubed
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup milk
- Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F.
- Add the flour, baking powder, salt and butter to a food processor and blitz until the butter is evenly distributed in the flour mixture.
- Add the egg and milk, and mix for a few seconds until the ingredients are just combined (don't overmix)
- Tip the dough out onto a floured surface and roll out until its about 2cm thick.
- Cut out shapes with a cookie cutter or a glass, and place onto a greased baking tray.
- Bake for 10 to 12 mins.
- Serve warm with butter and your favourite preserves.
