How do I get Scones to rise and be fluffy?
- Use good quality ingredients.
- First, make sure you’re using fresh baking powder, one that has been opened less than 6 months ago.
- Don’t soften your butter as cold butter makes scones rise higher.
- If it’s hot in your kitchen, freeze your butter before making scones.
- Measure your flour, DO NOT scoop it with the cup as this will cause that you pack the flour into the cup and you’ll end up with too much flour.
- Cut your butter into cubes.
- Also, if you knead the dough too much, the scones won’t rise as tall.
- Knead gently, and just enough to bring the dough together, so mix gently, do not over mix. Avoid over-mixing the dough. Too much stirring will toughen your scones.
- Adding more flour also prevents the dough from rising as high, so only dust lightly.
- Keep the scones as cold as possible until they are ready to go into the oven. This will make them rise better.
- Make sure your oven is fully preheated before baking the scones.
The most accurate way of measuring flour would be to weigh the flour on a kitchen scale.
- One cup of white flour weighs 125 grams.
- One cup of whole wheat flour weighs 140 grams.
- One cup of bread flour weighs 130 grams.
- One cup of cake flour weighs 114 grams.
