- A delightful recipe for the perfect classic scones, dollop with our clotted cream and juicy strawberry jam.
Pre-heat oven to 205°C (Fan), grease and flour a baking sheet.
Sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl then add the butter, baking powder and salt. Rub together quickly and lightly to a fine breadcrumbs consistency.
Using a metal knife, make a well in the centre and stir in enough milk to make a soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured board and roll out to approx. 2cm / 3/4 inch thick.
Use 3inch cutter for perfect rounds and brush with a little beaten egg.
Pop back in the fridge to chill for 30 mins
Remove from fridge and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown
Let cool and serve with delicious Original Strawberry Whole Fruit Jam and clotted cream.
For fruit scones add 500g sultanas or chopped dates to the dry ingredients or try savoury scones by adding 50g grated cheese and 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder to the breadcrumb mixture. Sprinkle with more grated cheese before baking.
