Homemade Scones Recipe

These scones are light and fluffy in texture and very simple to make. What is more better in this world than warm, fresh out of the oven scones served with jam and clotted cream….exactly.. nothing! Want to know how to make it? then keep on reading.

Ingredients:
  • 225g/ 2 cups self raising flour
  • 55g/1/2 stick cold butter
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 150ml/ 1/4 pint milk
  • 1 egg yolk beaten with a splash of milk
Preparation:
Heat the oven to 400 F/ 205 C/ Gas 6. Grease and flour a baking sheet. Sieve the flour into a roomy baking bowl then add butter, baking powder and salt.
Quickly rub the butter into the flour with your clean fingers until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre using a dinner knife, stir in enough milk to make a soft, pliable dough.
 Turn the mixture onto a floured board and knead very lightly until just smooth then lightly roll out to 2cm/ 3/4″ thick.
Cut rounds with a cookie cutter or whatever shape you want to make your scones, and place on a baking tray and brush with the beaten egg and milk mixture. Bake near the top of the hot oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with your favourite strawberry jam and clotted cream
 ENJOY!

  1. Nicely written. I’ve never heard a mixing bowl described as “roomy” before, but I love it!

  2. Not a bad recipe. I think rubbing in the butter by hand can take a little time if the butter is not really soft.

  5. I’d be happy to give them a try. I am surprised they do not require any sugar? Do you recommend salted or unsalted butter?

    1. I find that by adding sugar it gets overly sweet due to having jam with the scones as well (that’s just personal preference), as for salt I would recommend unsalted.. I’m glad your going to give them a try and please let me know how they turned out 🙂 Happy Baking and Merry Christmas- Ishan
