Ingredients

  • cups plain flour (all-purpose flour)
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 orange , zest only of orange, from large orange
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ tablespoon milk

For the glaze

  • 2 cups icing sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice, more if desired or necessary

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C. (400°F ; Gas Mark 6)
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl. Cut in butter using a pastry blender or fork until it is in pea sized lumps. Mix together 1 cup milk and sour cream in a measuring cup. Pour all at once into the dry ingredients, add the zest and the juice and stir gently until combined. It will be a little lumpy, be careful not to over mix.
  • With floured hands, form dough into balls 5 - 7 cm across. Place onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and flatten lightly. Whisk together the egg and ¾ tablespoon of milk. Brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash. Let them rest for a few minutes before putting them into the oven.
  • Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool completely on a baking rack before glazing.
  • For the glaze, whisk the icing sugar and orange juice together until smooth. If it looks too thick, add more juice. Too thin, add more sugar until it’s a nice consistency for drizzling. Pour glaze over cooled scones and allow the glaze to set before serving.
