Recipe Post N0.14- Healthy Lemon Scones

Hola a todos!

Firstly, I give thanks to all who commented on my last post. To tell the truth, I've missed writing up a blog post, to accompany my awesome photography(if I do say so myself😊😝).  I hope I haven't been gone for TOO long. Withal, I'm delighted to be back with yet another recipe using one of my favorite ingredients- lemonsπŸ˜πŸ˜‰ 

This week' post is a healthier alternative to the classic British bake which revolves around the Spring season.

In order to concoct these healthy treats,you'll need:

180g of "spelt flour"

½ tbsp of baking powder

¼ tsp of salt

zest of 1 medium lemon

28g of cold, unsalted butter

120g of plain nonfat Greek yogurt

45ml of maple syrup

3 tbsp of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tsp of vanilla extract

2 tbsp of milk


First and foremost, preheat the oven to 220/200 fan/ Gas Mark 7 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.

To prepare the scones, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Eventually whisk in the lemon zest. Add in the butter.

Make a well into the centre and incorporate the Greek yogurt, maple syrup,lemon juice and vanilla extract.Stir this until just mixed.

Transfer the dough int a prepared baking sheet. Brush the top over with milk. It's up to you whether you'd like to make one big scone or make 12 individual ones.

Bake for 17-19 minutes until the tops are lightly golden. Cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. And volia! I decided to make lemon drizzle icing to accompany my yummy scones.
