Lavender Buttermilk Scones

  • 225g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g unsalted butter, cut into small cubes, plus extra for greasing
  • 75g lavender-flavoured sugar; see Tips below
  • 150ml buttermilk, plus extra for brushing
  • Salt
  • Your choice of Bonne Maman Conserve, to serve 
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the lavender sugar (sifted if preferred) and a pinch of salt and make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Pour in the buttermilk and mix to combine, making a soft dough.
  4. Briefly knead the dough on a floured surface, then lightly roll out to about 2cm thick. Cut scones with a 6cm pastry cutter and place on a greased baking sheet.
  5. Brush the top of each scone with a little extra buttermilk and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned on the top. Cool on a wire rack, dust lightly with flour.
  6. Serve with your favourite choice of Bonne Maman Conserve.
