I’m not usually a tea drinker, but sometimes I enjoy herbal and fruit teas. Chamomile with a teaspoon of honey is one of my favourites and today I decided to transfer that taste into a scone! The result was a sweet, delicate and very comforting treat. I had one straight from the oven, with a freshly brewed cup of chamomile tea and honey. I served it with butter and a drizzle of honey on top. It was amazing.
- 210 g self-raising flour
- 50 g unsalted butter
- A pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp light honey
- 1 tbsp dried chamomile flowers or the contents of 1 chamomile tea bag
- 125 ml milk + extra for brushing on top
- Preheat oven to 190c / 170c fan assisted and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
- Mix the flour, butter, salt, honey and chamomile flowers together in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the milk and blitz again until the mixture balls together into a dough. Add more flour if too sticky/wet or more milk if it's too dry.
- Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter or upside down glass to make the scone shapes. You should be able to make approximately 9.
- Transfer the scones to the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops of the scones are lightly golden.
- Serve with jam and clotted cream or try with butter and some honey drizzled on top. Mmmm!
