Honey Glazed Cream Scones

recently kfc came up with a new breakfast menu and mama was telling me how much she enjoyed the honey biscuits, which otherwise is better known as scones too.

so last sunday morning she bought the breakfast set which we all shared and indeed it was yummy :) i liked the scones especially - buttery and honey-sweet. there were also waffles and scrambled eggs, and some chicken wrap which weren't very fantastic.

it wasn't cheap by the way, so i thought why not make my own? the ingredients for scones are simple, nothing elaborate. and so that evening, jessie, kang and i had fun baking scones together :) notice the cute cookie cutter designs, the bunny one is the cutest!

and the verdict by mama: awesome! she liked it and gave thumbs-up for it ;p crispy on the outside but soft inside!

it's best eaten warm, served with some maple syrup. according to her it's almost similar to kfc's!

one advice here: do not over-knead the dough else it is likely you will end up with a rock-hard scone. and i added more flour than the recipe stated cos my dough was way too sticky and wet.

oh yes, these scones aren't really cream scones cos i replaced the whipping cream with low fat fresh milk :) healthier yea but still as delicious!

Honey Glazed Cream Scones

Adapted from Stephanie Jaworski's Cream Scones. Taken from


280g all-purpose flour (add more accordingly if your dough is too wet)
40g castor sugar
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
90 g salted butter, cut into pieces
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup (120ml) fresh milk
Additional flour for dusting
Honey for glazing (dissolve in water if too thick)


Preheat oven to 190 degrees C and place the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with your finger tips. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. In a small measuring cup combine the milk and beaten egg. Add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until combined. Do not over mix.

Knead dough gently on a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches (18 cm) round. Then, using a cookie cutter, cut the dough into desired shapes. Place the rounds on the prepared cookie sheet, spacing a few inches apart. Brush the tops of the scones with a little honey. This helps to brown the tops of the scones during baking.

Bake for about 15 - 18 minutes or until nicely browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a scone comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
