The Great British Baking Show aired on PBS (via BBC) this winter and alas, is now a thing of the past. Those Brits did leave us with a trove of great recipes though – Including the Tea Time Scone, 1 of 3 classics featured for the technical challenge in the finale show.
Day after the finale, I of course needed to try this recipe for myself. The results: meh, in my opinion. But then, I’m nearly as critical as Paul Hollywood. The recipe as posted is in British, that is grams and ounces. Here I’ve translated it into plain English…oh, or maybe just plain American.
The scones in the photo are on the brownish side – I used King Arthur Unbleached Flour but it looked nearly whole wheat in color. Twas fine with me, but it did take them another degree further from their true Britishness.
