Added the baking soda as suggested. Came out light and a fluffy. Tx for suggestion Ifortuna. First time I ever baked scones. Was easy and fast. Didn't have a food processor. So I cut the butter into the flour using a flat wooden spoon and knife and that worked. Didn't add pepper flakes since my kids don't like spicy foods. Think that it needed more flavor and next time will add crumbled bacon bits to it. Ate one last week and it was good.
The baking soda is in addition to the baking powder. 1 teaspoon each is sufficient for this recipe.
Is the baking soda in place of the baking powder or in addition to it? Thanks.
Tasty. A little too spicy for me. Would use less pepper flakes next time...
