Plain Scones

Makes 4 large scones

  • 8 oz self-raising flour
  • 1.5 tablespoons of caster sugar (regular sugar works too)
  • 1.5 oz salted butter (room temp)
  • 0.5 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 egg plus milk to make 1/4 pint
  • Pinch of salt
  • (Optional) Add some dried fruit if you like – cranberries, raisins. Do not use watery or frozen fruit.

Oven to 430F

Sift the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder into a bowl. Use hands to mix in the butter until course crumbs form (don’t overwork).

Mix in milk+egg mixture with a rubber spatula.

Flour your hands and knead the mixture into a soft dough.

Flour a surface for rolling. Roll out to 3/4 – 1″ thick.

Cut into 4 pieces. You can do squares or triangles. Traditional scones are cut with a fluted cutter. I don’t own one, so I used a knife. Tastes the same.

Bake 12 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Eat on the same day or freeze and reheat.

Serve with butter and jam.
