Green Tea Matcha Scones Recipe

Green Tea Scones Recipe
One of my favourite ingredients is matcha green tea powder. I put it in everything – cakes, biscuits, sauces, you name it. It is particularly good for using in desserts with it’s bitter flavour and milky aftertaste. I decided to incorporate it into a simple scones recipe to make some yummy green tea scones 🙂 They go great with homemade mandarin marmalade!
Ingredients (makes 12 scones of around 4cm in diameter):

  • 225g self raising flour
  • 3tsp matcha powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 55g butter
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 150ml  milk
  • 1 egg beaten (for glazing)

Directions:

  • Heat the oven to 220C / Gas mark 7.
  • Put the flour, salt and matcha powder into a bowl and mix together.
  • Rub in the butter.
  • Stir in the sugar and add the milk and mix until you get a soft dough.
  • Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently.
  • Pat the dough until it is a thickness of around 2cm and use a cutter to cut out rounds. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough, cut out more scones and then repeat the process until all the dough is used up.
  • Place the scones onto a lightly greased baking tray.
  • Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden.
