Potato scones

Potato Scones



  • 250g potatoes, peeled
  • 30g butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons castor sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • half a cup cream or milk
  • 2 and a half cups self-raising flour, sifted


Preheat the oven to hot 210 degrees C. Steam or boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain, cool, and mash. Cream the butter and sugar, then beat in the potato, egg and cream. Place the flour in a bowl, make a well in the centre and add the potato. Mix together to form a soft dough, adding extra cream if needed. Turn onto a floured board and form into a smooth ball. Roll out to 2 cm thick and cut out rounds with a floured 5cm plain cutter. Place on a greased baking tray, glaze with milk and bake for 10-12 minutes.
