Makes 14-16 Scones

Easy Recipe

Ready in Under and Hour




I N G R E D I E N T S

450g Self Raising Flour

2tsp Baking Powder

50g Caster Sugar

100g Butter (Softened)

2 Eggs

A splash of Milk

Sultanas or Currents




M E T H O D

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Lightly grease two baking trays.

  2. Put the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

  3. Crack the eggs into a measuring jug, then add enough milk to make the total liquid 300ml/10fl oz. Stir the egg and milk into the flour – you may not need it all – and mix to a soft, sticky dough.

  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and work in the sultanas, if using. Roll out to a rectangle about 2cm/¾in thick.

  5. Cut into as many rounds as possible with a fluted 5cm/2in cutter and place them on the prepared baking trays. Brush the tops of the scones with a little extra milk, or any egg and milk left in the jug.

  6. Bake for 12–15 minutes, or until the scones are well risen and a pale, golden-brown colour. Lift onto a wire rack to cool. Eat as fresh as possible.

  7. To serve, split the scones and serve with strawberry jam on the plain scones along with a good dollop of clotted cream.
