Bake Scones With Cake Flour
- mixing bowl
- pastry brush
- baking sheet
- cooling rack
- parchment paper
- pastry cutter
- cake flour
- granulated sugar
- baking powder
- unsalted butter
- cold milk
- vanilla extract
- dried fruits
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cake flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
- Add the cold cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter or fork, cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. The butter should be evenly distributed.
- Pour the cold milk and vanilla extract into the bowl. Stir gently with a fork or spatula until the dough starts to come together. If using any mix-ins, fold them into the dough at this stage.
- Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently pat the dough into a 1-inch thick round. Using a round cookie cutter or a sharp knife, cut out scones and place them onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each scone. Gather any remaining dough scraps and repeat the process until all the dough is used.
- Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk and sprinkle with additional sugar for a touch of sweetness and added texture.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until the scones are golden brown on the edges and cooked through. Remove from the oven and transfer the scones to a cooling rack.
- Allow the scones to cool slightly before serving. Serve them warm or at room temperature with butter, jam, or your favorite accompaniments. Enjoy these fluffy and tender cake flour scones as a delightful treat any time of the day.
