Masterchef Series 3 Episode 2: Bootcamp – Scones.
Curious that buttermilk scones were the penalty round. It certainly showed that it’s not as simple as you might think. I couldn’t find a copy of the recipe & they didn’t give any instructions- Just 6 perfect scones in 25 mins.
In the judging it came down to the texture & feel, the colour- golden not blonde, whether the dough was cooked enough, if the size was consistent & in a good shape & if they tasted good straight from the oven. I like jam & cream too!
Here’s the scone segment, go to 2.20min. Pity about the ads first.
Then here’s the judging. More annoying ads.
Masterchef Scone Shame
I found this article from 2010 with a recipe. No idea if its any good but the CWA ladies give them a run for their money. Give it a try & let me know.
Look out for Men Rule at Scones, especially on Mother’s Day or any other day!
