Preheat:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220⁰C Conventional or 200⁰C Fan forced. Lightly dust a large baking tray with flour.

Mix:

  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  2. Add the diced butter and rub into the flour mixture using your fingertips until it is well incorporated.

  3. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the milk. Use a knife to gently bring the mixture together. *Do not overwork the flour dough.

Bake:

  1. Onto a lightly floured surface, gently knead the dough for 30 seconds. Press the dough down to approx. 1.5-2.0cm thick round. Use a lightly floured 7cm diameter cutter to cut out the scones.

  2. Place the scones on the baking tray and brush the tops of the scones with milk and bake for about 15-20 minutes.

  3. Scones are done when the tops are golden and the scones sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Decorate:

  1. Serve with Jam & Cream.
