1 cu buttermilk
2-1/2 cups white flour
2 tsp. ammonium bicarbonate
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Stir the ammonium bicarbonate powder into a little of the buttermilk. Mix the flour and the remaining buttermilk. Put in your salt and the dissolved bi-carb with the flour and buttermilk and mix thoroughly.
Roll out and cut into scones about 2-inches in diameter. Put on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degrees oven for 15 minutes.
Split them, spread with lashings of butter and serve hot.
They go wonderfully with strawberry jam or other such delectables and are redolent of summer Sunday afternoon, a strong case in themselves for bringing back the high tea.
