There they are traditionally served with 'clotted cream' or jam. But they are also delicious with some fresh butter or a layer of melted chocolate.

Pure enjoyment!

The ingredients for these matchascones

(for about 6 scones)

  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 250 grams of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of matcha powder
  • 40 grams of powdered sugar
  • 60 grams of butter
  • 50 grams of raisins
  • Half an egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 100 ml of cream
  • 2 tablespoons of applesauce
  • A pinch of salt

Preparation: this is how you make the scones

  1. First preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, matcha powder, a pinch of salt and icing sugar into a large bowl. Mix the batter.
  3. Add the butter in cubes.
  4. Knead until you have a crumbly dough and then add the raisins.
  5. In another bowl, mix half the egg, cream and applesauce and add this mixture to the dough. Knead again until smooth.
  6. Sprinkle your work surface or table with some flour and roll out the dough until it is about 3 to 4 cm thick.
  7. Take a round shape (with a diameter of about 6 cm) and use it to cut circles out of the dough. Place these circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure you leave enough space between these circles of dough.
  8. Brush the top of the dough with the egg yolk.
  9. Bake for 14 to 17 minutes and let cool on a wire rack.

It is best to heat them up for another five minutes at 160 degrees before serving.

They taste best with some homemade jam or fresh butter.
