Serves 4-6 | Prep Time 30 | Cook Time 20


2 cups flour
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon sugar (optional)
200 ml milk (or 1 egg and 150ml milk mixed together)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Sift the dry ingredients together.

Cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Rub with the fingertips lightly. The mixture should resemble course crumbs. You can do this step in a food processor, but put the mixture into a bowl before adding the liquid.

Add your liquid and mix lightly and gently with a butterknife or the fingertips. Don't over mix, this can create heavy scones.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and press out gently into an oblong shape, about 20mm thick.

Cut into squares or use a scone cutter.

Pop them onto a baking tray. Brush the tops with a bit of milk and bake at 240C (475F) until done, about 10 minutes.


Use 1/2 cup sour cream instead of the butter and the milk or milk and egg.

Cheese scones: Add 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar and omit the sugar.

Fruit scones: Add 1/2 cup raisins to the dough
