Kerrygold Raspberry Scones

Raspberry_Scones-3_copy-291x132

Ingredients:

  • 500g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 120 g Kerrygold Pure Butter, softened
  • 120 g caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 2 eggs
  • 6tbsp milk, plus extra for brushing
  • 150g fresh raspberries

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 220°C, dust a large baking sheet with flour.

Combine the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl and using your fingertips, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs. Add the sugar to the bowl and mix it through the crumbs.

In a measuring jug, whisk together the milk and egg until combined. Pour this into the crumb mixture and mix through with a table knife until a rough dough forms. Add the raspberries and mix it through the dough. Use your hands to push the dough together, making sure to include any mixture that’s stuck on the sides of the bowl.

Dust a clean work surface with a little flour, turn the dough out of the bowl and press into a round shape. With a rolling pin, roll the dough out to a thickness of 2.5cm (1in). Using a 7.5cm (3in) circular pastry cutter, cut out the scones and place on the baking sheet. Press the trimmings together, roll out and repeat the process until you have used all the dough.

Brush each scone with a little milk and sprinkle with sugar. Place in the oven on the middle shelf and bake for 12-14 minutes until they have risen and turned a lovely golden-brown colour on top.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving warm with a little butter and jam.

Raspberry, Lemon and Yogurt Tea Loaf

Tealoaf

This is one of the most popular treats at our tea rooms. We make it with summer fruits as they appear. All you need on the side is a good strong cup of tea.
Ingredients
  1. Makes one 1kg loaf
  2. 250g plain flour
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 115g soft butter
  5. 225g caster sugar
  6. The finely grated zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  7. 2 large free-range eggs
  8. 100g wholemilk natural yogurt
  9. 25g ground almonds
  10. 200g fresh raspberries
  11. 100g granulated sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin with non-stick baking paper. Sift together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Cream together the butter and caster sugar in a large mixing bowl for five minutes until pale and fluffy, then beat in the lemon zest. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, adding a tablespoon of the sifted flour with the second egg. Alternately fold in large spoonfuls of the remaining flour and the yogurt until the mixture is smooth, then fold in the ground almonds.
  2. Spoon a third of the cake mixture into the bottom of the loaf tin and scatter over a third of the raspberries. Repeat twice more, ending with a layer of raspberries. Bake for 45-50 minutes until the cake is nicely browned, then cover loosely with foil and bake for a further 20-25 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes away clean.
  3. Remove the cake from the oven and leave it to cool for five minutes. Mix the granulated sugar with the lemon juice, spoon it over the top of the cake and leave it to soak for five minutes. Carefully remove the cake from the tin and pop it on a wire rack to cool. Peel the paper away from the cake and sprinkle the top lightly with a little more sugar. Serve cut into thick slices. Why not try making this cake with fresh blackberries or blueberries instead of raspberries?
