Scones – The Great British Bake Off Technical Challenge Recipe
This is the extremely short version of the Scones recipe that the bakers had to follow in the second episode of the Season 1 of the Great British Bake Off. They used Paul Hollywood’s recipe, so if you’re looking for the full one, go check out the recipe from here.
Some More Insights to the Challenge
Expectation this time is to make a full batch of scones, all of them should be even and flawless. The total time for the challenge is 1 hour. This time the narrator mentions that “only Paul’s precisely measured ingredients are listed, nothing else” and both Paul and Mary mention all the details that the bakers should know themselves. Oven temperature and the baking time also have not been specified – so basically the entire process is up to the bakers!
If you decide to do this challenge – good luck! Don’t forget to share some pictures of your end result with me afterward! For the list of all Technical Challenge recipes I’ve added so far, go see this post here.
P.S. I haven’t added any pictures of the expected result for these challenge posts on purpose. It will be a lot more fun if someone finds the challenge and doesn’t know what the end result has to look like!
