We love a good Scone, however you prefer to pronounce it and whether you put the jam or the cream first, they’re just wonderful!
To make approximately 12 small Plain or Sultana Scones , you will need:
Ingredients (for each 12 scone batch):
8oz/ 225g Self Raising Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
2oz/ 55g Butter or Margarine
2oz/ 55g Caster Sugar
150ml/ 5fl oz Milk
3oz/ 85g Sultanas (if making the Sultanta Scones)
Lined or greased Baking Tray
Large Mixing Bowl
Fork, to help combine mixture
Preheat the oven to 220c / 425f.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, then rub in the butter/margarine to form breadcrumbs.
Add the sugar (and the sultanas if you are making these) and combine, adding a little milk at a time, to form a dough.
Lightly dust the work surface with flour and roll the dough into a thin sausage shape. Then, carefully slice to approximately 4cm slices.
Take each slice and roll it into a scone shape, then place onto the baking tray ad brush with a little milk.
Bake until lightly brown, roughly 10 minutes. Then remove from the oven and allow to cool.
In the meantime, whip up some double cream with a whisk.
Serve the Scones with a jar of strawberry jam and the whipped cream in a bowl.
