- 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
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
