Did someone say light and fluffy scones?

Freshly baked scones are amazing and nothing smells better for morning tea. Making them couldn’t be easier!

You will need:

3 Cups self-raising flour

80 grams of butter (it needs to be soft, room temperature)

1 to 1 and 1/4 cups milk

Jam and cream to serve (alternatively you can make date or cheese scones by adding some to the mix before you bake).

Step 1
Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees and place some backing paper on a baking tray.

Step 2
Sift the flour into a mixing bowl. Using your fingertips rub the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture looks like bread crumbs.

Step 3
Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk and mix until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required (make sure you mix thoroughly before adding more milk as you don’t want a sticky mixture). Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don’t knead dough too much or scones will be tough).

Step 4
Pat dough flat so that its about 2cm-thick. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press the remaining dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place the scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen (If using a fan forced oven they may only need 15-20 minutes so keep your eye on them). Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.

Delicious!
