This year my family and I spent our holidays in Wales. I sent a postcard from Wales for the BPW and it’s obvious to cook something Welsh as Holiday Cuisine. My younger son liked the Welsh scones, so when we passed a bakery like this he often asked, if he could get one. Home again, I baked some Welsh Scones or Sgonau Cymreig from my new Welsh cookbooks.
Next time I’ll turn the dough out to nearly 2 cm.

Currants scones that are specially buttery; a teatime treat.
Set oven to 225 °C/450 °F or Mark 8. Sift the flour, cream of tartar
and bicarbonate of soda together into a bowl, then rub in the butter
until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and dried
fruit. Make a well in the centre, drop in the egg and stir in,
adding sufficient milk to produce a soft dough. Turn out on to a
lightly floured surface, flatten with the hands to about 1.3 to 2 cm
– 1/2 to 3/4 inch – thick then form into 5 cm – 2 inch – rounds,
handling as lightly as possible. Place on a greased baking sheet and
brush with a little milk. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden.
Cool on a wire rack. Serve plain or with honey.
