A scone is a single serving cake or short bread and usually they are served with coffee for breakfast in Europe.It's easy to make and it's delicious. Within 30 mins , you can  prepare this cuties , if you have all ingredients in hand.
I prepared this scones today morning and we love it with black coffee. Such a nice combo to have. If you wish you can add fruits like blue berry, straw berry in this, but i stick to the basic version and it also know as coffee scones .
Ok,let see the procedure now.

Take the flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl and mix it well, then add sugar and butter.With your finger tips , break the butter and mix it with flour until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Now add buttermilk(i didnt add all the butter milk, i left with 1 tbsp of buttermilk) little by little and make dough.Flour the surface and roll into small disc of about 1-1.5 inch thickness  and with the help of cookie cutter or any sharp lid cover, cut into small round shape.

  • Butter should be cold, to get nice flaky texture.
  • Dont over mix the flour, it will affect the texture.
  • If you wish, you can strawberry or blueberry in this.
  • Keep on eye on the oven after 12 mins. 
  • I miss to brush the top with milk, do it for even colouring on the top
