Scones using Microwave

A few days back I was searching the internet for interesting microwave recipes. I came across the recipe for making scones which I felt was really a quick snack to make. The original recipe is here. I modified it to suit my taste and here is my version of the recipe:


Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Salted Butter (cold) - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Almonds (crushed) - 1/4 cup
Milk - 5 tbsp
Baking Powder - 3 tsp


Mix together the flour and baking powder. Rub the butter till the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Stir in the crushed almonds and sugar (I used white sugar). Add milk and make it to a soft dough using a fork. Do not knead the dough. Sprinkle flour place the dough on the sprinkled surface. Shape into a 1 inch thick square. Cut into squares, place it on a paper towel in the microwave. Cook at High or Full Power for 2 minutes or till a knife comes out clean when inserted. Allow a standing time of 3 minutes. Serve warm with cream or jam.

Note: The microwave minutes may vary. While Aparna of Mydiversekitchen had kept it for 3 minutes, mine were done in 2 minutes itself.

Scones are ready and Yummy!!!
