The perfect scone, freshly prepared in the Royal Galleys

Many of our visitors lately have been telling us how much they love our home-made scones in the Royal Deck Tea Room. Each morning, our team of chefs prepare all the food fresh for the day in Britannia's original Royal Galleys.

We asked our Executive Chef, Mark Alston, if he would mind sharing his recipe with us, so that we could pass on to you how to make the perfect scone!  Luckily he said yes!



To make 12 perfect scones, you'll need the following ingredients:

115g butter
665g plain flour
35g baking powder
115g caster sugar
200ml milk
200ml cream
120g sultanas
1 egg (beaten)

Method: Cream the butter and sugar until it is light in colour. Rub in the sifted flour and baking powder until it's a fine breadcrumb consistency. Add the sultanas. Mix in the milk and cream a little at a time to form a smooth dough. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 2cm in thickness. Cut out with a 6cm pastry cutter. Place on a baking tray, lined with baking parchment. Brush with the beaten egg and leave to rest for 10 minutes before cooking. Cook at 180˚ for 14-17 minutes.

Good luck and remember to post your successful pictures with #RoyalYacht on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram!
