Plain Scones

Plain Scones


  • 8 oz self raising flour
  • 1/4 pint milk or half milk half sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 beaten to glaze (optional)
  • 2 oz butter


Preheat oven to 200°C

Grease baking tray

Rub butter and flour + salt to resemble bread crumbs

Add milk gradually until mixture starts to stick together in one big ball

Shape and pat into 1/2 inch slab using hands not a rolling pin in order to keep dough light.

Cut 8-10 scones out of mixture with cutter, about 2 inch in diameter

Place scones on tray on high rack for 10 mins ( if scones brown to quick cover with tin foil).
