New 5 Star Secret Recipe

The Savoy Hotel’s Cornish scones

4 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 extra-large eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons buttermilk
Prepared egg wash
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dried fruit, such as sultanas, raisins, currants or diced candied orange or lemon peels

Heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Cut in the butter to give the mixture a sandy texture.

Pour over the eggs and buttermilk, and stir until incorporated; the dough will be crumbly and look dry. Continue to stir or knead it to form a cohesive dough.

Add the dried fruit, kneading it in the bowl to evenly incorporate it into the dough.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough three-fourths-inch thick. Cut the dough into rounds using a small circular cutter (about 1 1/4 inches in diameter).

Place the scones on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them about 1 1/2 inches apart. Brush the tops of the scones with the prepared egg wash once as they are arranged on the sheets, then once more before they go in the oven.

Bake the scones, 1 sheet at a time, until puffed and golden brown, about 18 minutes. Rotate the sheets halfway through baking for even coloring.

Makes about 2 dozen.

One thought on “The Savoy Hotel’s Cornish Scones

  1. I know this is 3 years after this is written but, I am making these scones now and I would love an answer. When I watched the video, the chef called for BAKING SODA and in your recipe ingredient list, it says BAKING POWDER.
    Which is right or, was there an error made when writing up this recipe.
    Thank you.
