Scones are originally made to be enjoyed next to tea, but I believe you can enjoy them at any time. Such a simple and delicious recipe! They are often eaten with clotted cream and jam, but as they are not too sweet, you can also just eat them with butter, honey, fresh fruits, etc.
- 300 g flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
*If you have self-rising flour, you don’t need to add the baking powder and baking soda.
- Pinch of salt
- 60 g butter
- 45 g sugar
- 120-130 ml milk approx.
Preheat the oven to 180°-190°C.
Add the baking powder and baking soda to the flour and mix.
Put the flour, salt and butter on a bowl and mix with a mixer until it resembles breadcrumbs (you can also just do it with your hands).
Add the sugar and mix again.
Then gradually add the milk and continue mixing until your dough doesn’t stick to the bowl.
Roll out your dough to ca 2 cm thick and cut out as many scones as possible with a cookie cutter, using all the dough. *Try not to twist the cookie cutter, just press it straight down and up, this way the scones don’t lose their shape and they rise better.
Put them on a tray and bake them for 10-12 minutes.
Serve them preferably with clotted cream and jam.
*You can easily make this recipe vegan if you use plant-based options for the butter and milk.
