Scones

Ingredients:

  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • 3 cups self-raising flour
  • 80g butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1-1 1/4 cups milk
  • Jam, to serve
  • Whipped cream, to serve

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.
  2. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don't knead dough too much or scones will be tough).
  4. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour.
  5. Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.
