Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 80g butter, chilled and chopped
  • 1 cup milk

Method:

Preheat oven to 220°C. Grease and flour a 22cm round cake tin and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the flour and sugar.

Using your fingertips, rub the butter through the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre of the flour and add milk. Using a large knife, cut the mixture together.

Turn it out onto a floured surface and lightly knead the dough to bring it together.

Pat out into a 2cm thick round and use a 4cm scone cutter to cut out 14 scones.

Place, touching together in the cake tin and dust the tops with flour.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then wrap the scones in a clean tea towel to keep warm.

Serve with berry jam and whipped cream.
