On the bag, it simply states: "just add milk", however I add a few other ingredients to make it perfect for brown scones as the mix is actually meant for making a loaf of brown soda bread. I will pop my recipe for the scones down below so you can also attempt them.

The final result!
A close up.
500g brown bread mix (preferably Odlums)
200ml cold milk
100ml natural yoghurt
Plain flour for dusting
1) Preheat the oven to 200˚c or gas mark 6.
3) Pour the milk, yoghurt and egg into the well and mix with your hands to form a soft dough.
4) Knead the dough a little on a floured surface, then use a rolling pin to roll the dough out until it's about 2cm thick.
5) Use a circular cookie cutter to make 12 circular pieces of dough (as seen above).
6) Place the scones on a floured baking tray and bake for 30 minutes approx. You may need to keep checking them to make sure they don't burn.
7) When baked, the scones will have a hollow sound if tapped on the base.
8) Put the scones on a cooling rack to cool, then enjoy with butter and jam (or whatever takes your fancy!).
Note: Milk other than cow's milk can be used but may produce a lighter colour when baked.
Bye for now! xx
