Scones with Vanilla and Maple Syrup Butter

(Will make 8 – 10 scones)


400 g [0,9 lb] flour
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon vanilla
½ teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
125 g [4,4 oz] butter in small cubes
2 dl [0,4 pt] sour milk
Vanilla and maple syrup butter:
1½ dl [0,3 pt] maple syrup
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
150 g s[5,3 oz] butter


[1] Preparation: Preheat the oven. Over and under heat: 220° C / 430° F

[2] Dough: Mix flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking soda, vanilla, salt and sugar in a bowl. Crumble in the butter until the mixture has the consistency of bread crumbs. Add sour milk and gather the dough quickly. If you knead the dough, the scones become small, compact and heavy, rather than light and airy.

Pour the dough onto a floured surface and roll it to a thickness of approx. 1 inch. Punch out the scones with a glass. Place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper Brush them with a mixture of eggs and cream if desired.

Bake the scones for 10-12 minutes until they are golden on the top.

[3] Vanilla and maple syrup butter: Boil syrup and lemon juice in a saucepan. Add the butter a little at a time and stir the mixture well. Add some vanilla and whisk it all with a mixer until the mixture is thick and creamy. Serve the butter with freshly baked scones.
