Scones

Where would we be without scones? Great for a picnic with butter or jam - or both!

Ingredients:

450g/1lb self-raising flour

2 level tsp baking powder

50g/1¾oz caster sugar

100g/3½oz butter, softened, cut into pieces

2 free-range eggs

a little milk

handful sultanas (optional)


Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Lightly grease two baking trays.


2. Put the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.


3. Crack the eggs into a measuring jug, then add enough milk to make the total liquid 300ml/10fl oz. Stir the egg and milk into the flour – you may not need it all – and mix to a soft, sticky dough.


4. Turn out onto a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and work in the sultanas, if using. Roll out to a rectangle about 2cm/¾in thick.


5. Cut into as many rounds as possible with a fluted 5cm/2in cutter and place them on the prepared baking trays. Brush the tops of the scones with a little extra milk, or any egg and milk left in the jug.


6. Bake for 12–15 minutes, or until the scones are well risen and a pale, golden-brown colour. Lift onto a wire rack to cool. Eat as fresh as possible.
