Yummy scones, thank you James Martin.

Yesterday I made these irresistible scones. My husband knows that if he wants baked treats then he has to work for them. In this case, I was short on eggs for the recipe so off to Tesco he did go!

Thanks to James Martin's scrummy recipe, we have these tasty little numbers to eat our way through over the next couple of days (if they last that long, they really are good!).

I've taken the liberty of including my own pictures as a guide to what the dough should look like after each stage of the recipe, although James' instructions are perfectly fine on their own.

Sieve the bread flour and baking powder into a bowl

Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour

Stir in the sugar and beaten eggs

Use a wooden spoon to mix in the milk and bring the dough together

Roll, cut, turn and place on a baking sheet, brush with egg yolk

Bake for 10-12 minutes and then place on a rack to cool for a couple of minutes before serving warm with whatever you fancy adding to them!
