250ml cake flour
375ml cake flour, sifted
20ml baking powder
30ml caster sugar
pinch of salt
125ml sunflower oil
1 egg beaten
1 tbs orange zest
1 egg beaten for glazing.
Pre-heat the oven 200°C.
Place the sifted flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt in a bowl.
Mix together the oil, buttermilk and egg and stir into the flour mixture to form a soft dough. If the dough looks a little stiff stir in a little extra buttermilk.
Lightly flour a flat surface and turn the dough out onto it.
Press the dough out to a thickness of 2.5cm .
Cut out 12 scones and place them onto a greased baking tray and brush with beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown, cool on a wire rack.
Serve with grated cheese and apricot jam and cream if you so wish.
