VE Day – Devonshire Splits, an alternative to scones

Are you looking for an alternative to scones for your Lockdown VE Day commemoration? May I suggest the wonderful Devonshire Split? I usually make these with students on my Devon Baking Day class but they are adored by my children (and husband) so I regularly make them for special occasions.

They are lovely enriched buns (also known as chudleighs, after the market town). Quick and easy to make they are perfect accompaniment to beautiful plates and a pot of tea.

Makes 8-10 splits:

250g plain white flour

250g strong white bread flour

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp caster sugar

60ml butter (unsalted) (melted)

3 tbsp warm water

260ml milk (whole)

7g fast yeast

 

Mix the flours, salt, sugar and yeast in a bowl.  Add melted butter, water and milk and mix to a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 mins – set a timer as it’s longer than you think!  Divide the dough into 10 pieces and shape into a flat round bun.  Place onto a greased baking sheet, lightly dust with flour, cover with a tea towel, and leave to rise for an hour, or until doubled in size. Gloss with egg wash (one egg, beaten), before baking at Gas Mark 6 / 180 for about 15-20 mins.

Once cooled they are cut open and traditionally they are filled with clotted cream or whipped double cream and jam.  Dust with icing sugar and eat!

I went on the basic bread making course. Boudicca is an excellent host and teacher. I have made bread in the past, but picked up many new tips... I have since baked a further loaf at home with great success and there will be more to come!
