Squibble Scone Recipe 🧁
Ever wondered what a Squibble scone tastes like? Heavenly, that's what! Check out our Squibtastic recipe below and impress your family with your culinary magic! Make sure you get an adult to help you with the hot things like the microwave and operating the oven!
Squibble Scones: A Teatime Treat You Won't Forget!🧁
350g self-raising flour, plus more for dusting
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
85g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
3 tbsp caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten
A handful of rainbow sprinkles, for that Squibble touch!
Preheat the Oven (adult required): Get your oven warmed up to 220°C (200°C fan or Gas Mark 7). Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder.
Butter Time: Rub in the butter cubes until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Then stir in the sugar.
Milky Way (adult required): Heat the milk in the microwave for about 30 seconds. It should be warm, not hot. If you don’t have a microwave, heat in a pan until it steams but don’t boil it. Add the vanilla extract to the milk.
Mix It Up: Make a well in the centre of the dry mixture and pour in the milk. Mix it together with a cutlery knife.
Rainbow Surprise: Gently fold in the rainbow sprinkles to give your scones that extra Squibble flair!
Knead and Shape: On a floured surface, gently knead the dough just a few times. Roll it out to about 2.5 cm in thickness and use a round cutter to make your scones.
Brush and Bake: Place the scones on the baking tray and brush the tops with the beaten egg for a golden shine.
Oven Magic (adult required): Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until your scones are risen and gloriously golden on top.
Cool & Serve: Have an adult help to take them out of the oven, they’ll be super hot! Let them cool on a wire rack, and then they're ready for you to enjoy with clotted cream, jam, or just a dollop of love! Which will you put on first? The cream or the jam…?
There you have it—your very own batch of Squibble Scones! Ready to make teatime truly Squibblicious! 🌈💛
Happy baking, Squiblets! 🌈💛

Squibble Good Deeds: Spreading Kindness One Squibble at a Time 🌈
We believe kindness is the glue that holds the Squibble community together. So, we're launching our Kindness Campaign, a fabulous way to celebrate and share your acts of kindness.
Here's how to get involved:
Perform a Kind Act: From helping a friend with their homework to planting a tree, every kind act counts!
Share Your Story: Snap a pic or jot down a note about your act of kindness and share it with us. Make sure to tag us on socials and use the hashtag #SquibbleKindness.
Spotlight Moment: Each week, we'll feature a selection of your kind acts in our newsletter and on our social media platforms, turning them into Squibble art or fun stories!
By sharing your acts of kindness, you'll inspire others to do the same. It’s like a chain reaction of goodness, and who knows, your story might just become a part of the next Squibble adventure!
