Sophie Wessex shares her recipe for ‘wonderful’ bacon and cheese scones.
SOPHIE COUNTESS OF WESSEX is a superb baker who even shared a recipe for bacon and cheese scones with royal lovers.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex, shared a video of herself baking bacon and cheese scones on the Royal Family’s Instagram account earlier this year. Sophie wore a white apron over a blue and white flowery dress with her hair gathered into a low ponytail while preparing the hefty batch of cheese and bacon scones. Because she is the president of Girl Guiding in the UK, the Countess’ activities were part of the organization’s #ActYourAge campaign. This ad encouraged people to embrace their age and use it for good.
As a result, Sophie baked a staggering 55 scones, which was the Countess’s age at the time.
She even made a joke about it, stating, “Actually, I’ve decided to bake cheese and bacon scones, which is fine if you’re ten years old.”
“I’m not a ten-year-old kid.” So I’ve got 55 cheese and bacon scones to make.” Still, she took her time baking them, making a selfie-style video to show off her efforts as she mixed together the flour, eggs, bacon, and cheese.
During the process, royal fans got a glimpse of her royal kitchen in Bagshot Park, where she lives with Prince Edward and their two children.
10 rashers streaky bacon, plus extra butter for frying
275g flour (self-rising)
a half teaspoon of baking powder
Milk, 150 mL
50 milliliters of vegetable oil
1 egghandful chives, snipped
150g cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius and butter a 12-hole muffin tray.
Fry the bacon in a frying skillet over medium heat for five minutes, or until golden.
Allow it cool before chopping into chunks and setting aside for later.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and one teaspoon of sea salt in a mixing basin.
Mix the butter into the flour mixture with your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Whisk together the milk, oil, and egg in a small bowl.
Pour into the dry ingredients and stir gently until the flour is largely moistened.
After mixing in the bacon, chives, and cheese, ladle the batter into the muffin tins.
Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake the muffins for 20 minutes, or until golden brown on top. For the best results, serve the scones while they are still warm.
You like your scones salty, with seared bacon and grated cheese, but the Countess of Wessex prefers them plain. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
