My scones

Yield 12 scones



  1. Add the flour, salt and baking powder to a bowl and mix.
  2. Add the butter cubes and rub in the butter in the flour with your fingers.
  3. Add the sugar and mix.
  4. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and add the lukewarm ( not hot) milk. Start combining it with a fork. The dough will be pretty wet.
  5. Dust some flour over the counter top and tip out the wet dough. 
  6. Dust your hands with flour and fold the dough about 2 - 3 times and flatten it with rolling pin if needed to about 3 to 4 cm thickness.
  7. Use a cookie cutter to shape the scones. I made mini ones. Place them on baking sheet.Glaze the top with the egg wash.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes in a pre heated oven at 220 C.
  9. Serve warm with jam and clotted cream.
