English Scones Recipe
I’m sharing with you how to make Scones. This English Scones recipe is delicious with jam and freshly whipped cream. This Scone recipe is easy and quick to make, perfect for afternoon tea!
3 Cups / 375g Flour
2 Tbsp Baking Powder
3 Tbsp Sugar
½ tsp Salt
¼ Cup / ½ Stick / 60g Butter
1 Cup / 250ml Milk
In a medium sized bowl combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together.
Cut the butter into cubes and rub it into the flour using your fingertip until there are only pea sized pieces.
Pour the milk into the bowl and mix the scone dough together with a wooden spoon or butter knife.
Roll the scone dough out until it is about 2cm or an inch thick.
Use a cookie cutter to cut rounds out of the scone dough and place on a lined baking sheet. You can re-roll the leftover dough once to get more scones.
Brush the tops of the scones with milk and place into a 220C/420F oven for 20-25 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown on the top.
Leave to cool on the baking sheet completely before serving with freshly whipped cream and strawberry jam.
