Scone Mix

I usually have a container of scone mix in the fridge so I can whip up a batch of scones in less time than it takes to heat the oven.  This is a basic mix to which you can add a variety of different ingredients.  My favourite scones using this mix are fruit scones and the recipe will follow in the next post.  I make the mix in a food processor but because it makes a lot I usually do it in two batches as my processor cannot accommodate so much at a time.

Scone Mix

7 x 250 ml flour (7 cups)

10 ml salt

45 ml baking powder

350 g butter or margarine, cut into pieces

Sift the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl and transfer to the food processor.  Add the butter or margarine and process well until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge until needed.

Use to make Fruit Scones.
