  • 80ml Maple syrup
  • 60ml Warm water (Body temp)
  • 360g Plain flour
  • 3tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/2tsp Salt
  • 50g Butter, room temp, cut into thin sheets


  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the middle.
  2. In a jug, mix the water, yeast and syrup, pour into the well and mix until completely combined, then “cut” the butter into the mixture by basically folding it in with a cutting motion to break it up.
  3. Cover the bowl and leave to rise for half an hour, transfer to a baking sheet, let rise fore another half hour, preheat oven to gas mark 6/ 200*C/ 400*F, cut a cross into the top and bake until it sounds hollow when tapped on the underside (30 ish minutes). Done.
