JILL BAKES | Snickers Scones
Fluffy buttermilk scones filled with chunks of snickers - delicious served warm with butter!
You will never buy a scone again when you can rustle these up in about half an hour - the smell of them cooking is amazing!
Remember - the secret to a good scone is not adding too much liquid! Too much buttermilk and they won’t rise up and be nice and fluffy so take care when adding - the mixture should be drier than you probably think.
I love a rustic looking scone but you could roll out and use a cutter if you prefer a neater dainty scone.
Who will you make these for?!

Makes 4 large scones
225g soda bread self-raising flour
30g butter or spread
30g caster sugar
150ml (1/4 pt) buttermilk
3 Snickers bars, sliced
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees fan.
In a large bowl, rub the spread/butter into the flour until it resembles a breadcrumb texture.
Add in the sugar and combine.
Add in buttermilk until it forms a dough using a knife to combine.
(Only add enough milk to bind the ingredients - it's quite a dry dough so don't be tempted to add too much!)
Add the chopped Snickers pieces and combine - don't mix too much.
Divide the dough into 4 equal pieces and place on to a baking tray with just a little bit of space between each other. Flour your hands if the dough is sticky.
Bake for 17-20 minutes until golden. Leave to cool a little and then enjoy!
