Street Feast Recipes: The very best scones

A super simple, melt-in-your-mouth scone recipe perfect for your Street Feast! With just 4 ingredients you can whip these up in half an hour.

 

Ingredients

  • 225g self raising flour
  • 85g butter(softened)
  • 28g sugar(we used granulated)
  • 1 egg

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220c. Line a tin with baking paper.
  2. Place the flour, butter, sugar and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Using your fingertips, rub together until the mixture resembles bread crumbs.
  3. Break one egg into the mixture ( I whisked the egg with a fork in a separate bowl beforehand but this is not a necessity!)
  4. Mix until a rough dough is formed. Using your hands, gather the dough together. Add a dash of milk if the consistency is very crumbly!
  5. Dust a work surface and using a roller, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1 inch. Cut out the scones using a pastry cutter and place on baking paper. Press left over dough together, roll out and repeat the process until you have used all the dough.
  6. Place in the oven for 12 minutes or until they are a golden colour.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving

Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland hosted by you and your neighbours. They can be anywhere really - out on the street, in a local park or in your front garden.

There are lots of good reasons to have a Street Feast, but it's really just a great excuse to eat great food, celebrate your local community and meet new people who live near you.
