Scone Churros

September 11, 2012

Sweet Inspirations

I have recently been watching this cooking programme which I would describe as a mix between challenge gameshow ‘Crystal Maze’ and dramatic American cooking shows.  Despite the oddities within the production I was intrigues by the concept.  The cooking contestants (professional chefs) had to create sweet treats inspired by a main unique object presented to them like a conch shell and use ingredients not necessarily associated with desserts such as seaweed and hot pepper sauce.  When I made my churros scones (as simple as they are) I felt as if I had a stroke of genius.  I was having a Mexican food day and I thought wouldn’t it be fun to turn my scones into different shapes and treat them like Mexican churros! Let your creative juices flow!

Ingredients:

225g self – raising flour, 55g unsalted butter (chilled), pinch of salt, 50g golden granulated sugar, clotted cream and melted chocolate (to serve).

Method:

1. Sift the flour into bowl with a pinch of salt.
2. Add the butter by cutting into cubes.
3. Using your hands make fine breadcrumbs with the flour and butter.
4. Pour  most of the milk into a well in the centre of the flour leaving a little bit for brushing the scones with.
5. Using hands make the mixture into a spongy dough.
6. Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C.
7. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough until smooth.
8. Roll out dough into thick strips (roughly 20cm) and twist 2 together.  Continue until dough has been used up.
9. When all of the twists have been made put onto a baking sheet on a baking tray and brush with milk.
10. Bake the scones for 11 minutes.
11. Let them cool and drizzle some of the melted chocolate on the twists for decoration.
12. Serve with cream and melted chocolate.
