How to make scones - this basic scone recipe uses only 4 ingredients to create easy scones in no time.
Serve with jam and whipped cream for a quick morning or afternoon tea.


  • 3 Cups Self Raising Flour
  • 75 grams Butter
  • 1½ Cups Milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • extra flour

  1. Preheat oven to 220℃
  2. Lightly dust a large baking tray with flour.
  3. Add your 3 cups flour and salt to a bowl.
  4. Chop up cold butter into small pieces, toss them into the flour and rub the pieces into the flour by pressing them between your fingertips.
    Do this until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  5. Make a well in the centre. Add milk and quickly mix to a soft dough using a knife.
  6. Knead 2 to 3 times.

  8. Place the scones on the baking tray, nestling them up against one another.
  9. Brush tops with a little more milk, then bake for 12-15 minutes.
  10. The scones are ready when they feel firm when squeezed in the middle.
