Difficulty:
Easy
Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
10 minutes
Servings:
Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 350g self-raising flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 85g butter, cut into cubes
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 175ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • squeeze lemon juice (see tips below)
  • beaten egg, to glaze
  • jam and clotted cream, to serve

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Add self-raising flour, ¼ tsp salt, and baking powder to a large bowl and mix together.
  • Step 2: Incorporate the butter, working it in with your hands until the mixture resembles small crumbs. Mix in the caster sugar.
  • Step 3: Place the milk into a jug and microwave it for around 30 seconds until it is warm, but not boiling. Then, blend in the vanilla extract and a touch of lemon juice, and leave aside for a bit.
  • Step 4: Place a baking sheet in the oven. Form a hollow in the dry mix, adding the liquid and blend them hastily with a cutlery knife - the mixture will appear fairly moist at first.
  • Step 5: Sprinkle some flour onto the workstation and empty the dough onto it. Liberally coat the dough and your hands with flour, then fold it over a couple of times till it forms a more uniform texture. Press it down to a thickness of about 4 cm. Take a 5 cm wide cutter (round ones with smooth edges will produce a better rise) and dip it in flour, then press it down into the dough. Continue the process until you get 4 scones. If you still have dough left, gather it back together and press it into a round shape to cut out more.
  • Step 6: Gently brush the tops of the finished buns with a beaten egg, and place on a preheated baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes until the tops have risen and become a golden color. Enjoy warm or chilled on the day of baking, with jam and clotted cream. If you plan on freezing them, let the buns cool completely before freezing. When ready to eat, allow them to thaw, then put them in an oven at a low temperature (around 160C/140C fan/gas 3) for a few minutes to heat up.
