Easy baking activities are a fun way to get your kids in the kitchen. This is the simplest scone recipe around. Watch 10 year old Alex make his own scones in the video (with some help from Mum).
Good scones rely on heat and speed. So preheat your oven to about 240°C (220°C fan-forced).
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until they come together loosely.
Turn the dough onto a floured surface and kneed it with the palms of your hands until it's soft and smooth.
Pat it into a 2.5cm flat shape.
Cut out as many scones as you can with your cookie cutter.
Arrange them on the tray so that they are just touching.
Brush the tops with milk.
Cook them in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
Take them out when they're nicely browned on top. For good measure, you can turn the oven off and leave them in for about 5 minutes so the centre cooks properly.
Serve with jam and cream. Yum!
