One thing which many people seem to have been doing more of since lockdown is baking. I try not to bake very often myself as it just encourages me to eat all the delicious goodies, and I can do without all those extra calories, but I've really been fancying a homemade scone over the last week or two. Unfortunately, I hadn't been able to get my hands on any flour to satisfy my craving, until Thursday. Of all the things which were in short supply at the start of lockdown, most are back in regular stock, but a flour shortage seems to be the one thing which is ongoing. It's all kinds of flour too, the shelves seem to be permanently bare.
I usually make my scones with self-raising flour but plain flour was all I could get hold of so I looked up a simple scone recipe online which uses plain flour and this is the result.
They're not the prettiest things, granted. I didn't want to waste a single crumb so instead of using pastry cutters, which make attractive round scones, I just cut the dough into portions with a knife before baking so they're all very irregular shapes.
Spread with jam (I'm not too bothered about cream) they tasted delicious, and there's still plenty of flour left so I can make more when I have a craving again.
