And here an all time favorite of mine, lovely scones :-) I always prepare a batch and freeze them right after they have cooled down. That way I always have some sitting in the freezer waiting for tea time.


  • 225 g plain flour
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder
  • 50 unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • about 150 mL milk (I also made them with soy milk once, worked as well)
And how to make them, really one of the quickest things ever!
  • preheat oven to 220 °C (200 °C fan)
  • sift the flour and baking powder in a bowl
  • rub in the butter (this really only works by taking your hands). the mixture should have a texture of breadcrumbs
  • add the salt and sugar and salt and carefully add milk, just enough to form a stiff dough
  • don't knead the dough to much, this will destroy the texture, just pad it down to 1- 1.5 cm thickness and cut out circles (6-7 cm diameter is said, but I make them a bit smaller)
  • transfer on a baking tray lined with grease proof paper, well apart from each other
  • bake for 10-15 mins until risen and golden brown
  • let them cool on a wire rack and enjoy (best with clotted cream an jam but if non available with anything else! :-))
