Total Servings – 12 scones
Preparation Time – 25 minutes
Cooking Time – 20 minutes
3.52 oz. of butter
5 fl. oz. of milk
10 rashers of bacon
5.3 oz. of grated cheddar cheese
9.7 oz. of self-raising flour
Few tablespoons of snipped chives
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sea salt
1.7 fl. oz. of vegetable oil
Take a 12 cups muffin tin and grease the cups generously with oil or butter. Set the muffin tin aside once done and then set a preheating temperature of 392 degrees Fahrenheit on your oven.
Now place a flying pan on your stove and adjust the flame to medium high. Dump the bacon rashers in the pan and fry them until they turn golden and crispy. Once done, extract the bacon strips from the pan and drain the fat. Chop the strips into bite sized pieces and set aside on a plate.
After that, take a large mixing bowl and dump the self-raising flour in it. Add to it the baking powder and sea salt. Mix the dry ingredients well and then add-in the butter. Mix the butter thoroughly with the dry ingredients until the mixture turns crumbly in nature.
Take another bowl and whisk the milk, egg and vegetable oil together. Pour the mixture into the flour mixture and combine until the batter is moistened but remains lumpy. Once done, add-in the chives, chopped bacon and grated cheese. Mix well and then fetch the greased muffin tin.
Fill the individual muffin cups with the batter, keeping a little space for allowing the scones to expand. Once all the muffin cups are filled, pop the muffin tray into the preheated oven and bake the scones for 20-25 minutes or until they turn golden brown in color. Once ready, remove them from the oven and serve immediately or store in freezer for later use.
