MEDITERRANEAN SCONES

I love a good food blog competition. 
I was asked to submit my best Mediterranean recipe so here is my delicious recipe.  

I cant claim they are authentic but they are tasty.  Taking the spirit of the Mediterranean and blending it with a little English charm, I give you the Mediterranean Scone.  


The olives and Feta are sharp and tangy and the roasted red peppers are sweet and smoky and together they make a lovely, light, delicious scone;


INGREDIENTS


350g All Purpose Flour
3 heaped tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
50g butter, cut in pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
100g char grilled peppers
100g feta cheese, cubed
10 olives, pitted and halved
300ml full fat milk
1 egg, beaten, to glaze

METHOD

  1. Heat the oven to 200C/ 390F. Dust a large baking sheet with a little flour. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter with the oil, until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, then add the peppers, cheese and olives. 
  3. Make a well in the centre, pour in the milk and mix with a knife, using a cutting movement, until it becomes a soft ‘stickyish’ dough. Don’t overhandle the dough.
  4. Flour your hands and the work surface well, and shape the dough into a round, about 3-4cm thick. Cut into eight wedges and place them well apart on the baking sheet. Brush with beaten egg and bake for 15-20 mins until risen, golden and springy to the touch. 
  5. Transfer to a wire rack and cover with a clean tea towel to keep them soft. These are best served warm and buttered. Will keep for 2-3 days in an airtight container.

A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude! You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons started when I moved from the UK to Edmonton in Canada. I blog about fabulous food, family and my long standing love affair with gin and tonic!

Very glad to have you come along for the ride- is it gin o clock yet?
