  1. Place potato into simmering basket and pour water over. Cook for 20 min/100ºC/speed 3. Remove simmering basket and cool potato.

  2. Preheat oven to baking setting 200ºC and line a flat baking tray with paper.

  3. Place wheat into clean and dry Thermomix bowl and mill for 1 min/speed 10. Set aside.

  4. Place butter and sugar into Thermomix bowl and blend for a 5 sec/speed 5.

  5. Add remaining ingredients except including cooled potato and mix for 6 sec/speed 6.

  6. Knead for 30 sec/Interval.

  7. Roll dough out on well floured Silpat mat and cut into rounds using floured MC. Brush with milk, and bake for 15 minutes until golden. This is quite a sticky dough, but try to manage it without adding extra flour as this means a beautiful fluffy scone as the end result. (And don't we all want fluffy in our scone??)


Serve hot with the obligatory butter, lemon curd, jam, whipped cream or mascarpone…need I go on? Then go to the gym for penance!
