Afternoon Classic – Scones



I randomly made these scones a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t believe how many people liked the scones and asked if I could blog the recipe 🙂 Such nice encouragement so here is it everyone! It’s a recipe I’ve been using for a while now, I find this recipe to be one of the easiest to make and you will have most of the ingredients at home.

Scones1The only part I don’t like about making scones is rubbing the butter into the flour because I have long nails, and the mixture always get stuck. The dough can also be a little sticky when rolling and cutting it out, but trust me it’s worth it! Anyhow, please try and let me know how your scones turn out 😀

Recipe – Scones adapted from
Yield – 12-14 scones depending on size

3 cups (450g) self-raising flour
1 tablespoon caster sugar
Pinch of salt
50g unsalted butter, chopped
1 1/4 cup (310ml) milk
Extra milk to glaze

To Serve
Raspberry jam
Whipped cream

1) Preheat oven to 220°C (fan forced) and line tray with baking paper. Sift self raising flour, sugar and salt into a bowl. Add butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Make a well in the centre of the mixture.
2) Pour milk into the well and use a butter knife in a cutting action to stir and combine until it is just combined and becomes a soft but sticky dough (Add more flour or milk if too dry or too wet).
3) Gently knead dough on floured surface using your fingers or a rolling pin pat the dough into a 2cm thick disc.
4) Using a scone cutter (5cm diameter round cutter) dipped into flour and cut into scones. Place scones onto tray making sure they stick together. To glaze gently brush scone with some milk.
5) Bake scones on the top shelf of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown and scones sound hollow when gently tapped. Place scones into a clean tea towel and serve warm with jam and cream.

    Yum! The trick to not getting it all sticky and everywhere is to roll it between two pieces of parchment paper. 😉
