There are many, many different recipes for scones. Some recipes use eggs, some don’t. Everybody seems to have a closely guarded secret to make sure their scones are the best.
My secret ingredients are free and can be added at any time – confidence and care. Be confident that you will make the best scones and they will be sensational. Care about them, using good quality ingredients and they will reward you with their deliciousness. If you worry, something will go wrong – perhaps the worry is transmitted through the fingers. I remember my heavy, lumpy offerings when a scone novice. Just keep practising. This recipe for plain scones is pretty foolproof.
