Strawberry scones with mascapone
These strawberry scones are moist and flavorful, a tasty snack.
Servings: 6 large
- 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour 175g plain flour
- ½ tbsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup mascapone 60ml (4 tbsp)
- ¼ cup milk 60ml
- ½ lemon zest ie from ½ lemon
- ½ tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 cup strawberries 140g, stems removed and roughly chopped, divided
Preheat the oven to 400F/200C.
Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Put the mascapone, milk, lemon zest and juice, sugar and half the strawberries (½ cup/70g) in a blender/small food processor and blend together.
Add the pureed strawberry-mascapone mixture and the remaining chunks of strawberry (cut smaller if any large pieces) to the flour mix and carefully mix it all together, being careful not to overmix.
Tip the mixture out onto a floured surface and carefully flatten the mixture out a bit to around 1in/2.5cm thick (Use floured hands and a little more flour on top, if needed). Cut into pieces - either cut a rough circle into triangles or a rectangle into squares/rectangles as you prefer. You'll get around 6 large or a few more if smaller.
Use a spatula to put the pieces onto baking sheets/trays (best lined with greaseproof paper or silicone baking sheet but otherwise oiled) and bake for around 15-18 minutes until browning on the corners.
