Preparation 10 minutes

Preheat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius. Cut the cold butter into small cubes. Add the flour, caster sugar, salt and the cubes of butter to the bowl of the stand mixer.

Attach the paddle beater and mix on the lowest setting for 5 minutes, or until the dough becomes crumbly. Break the eggs into a small bowl and add the yoghurt, then mix until smooth.

Add the egg and yoghurt mixture to the bowl of the stand mixer and mix to a smooth dough.


Baking the scones 10 minutes

Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Scoop the dough into a piping bag (or use an ice cream scoop or 2 spoons). Determine how large you want the scones to be, then pipe a ball of the dough onto the lined baking tray.

Bear in mind that the larger the scone, the longer it will take to bake. Bake the scones in the preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on the size of the scones) until golden brown.

These scones are best enjoyed spread with clotted cream, jam or lemon curd. Enjoy!
