- · 375g Self Raising Flour
- · 1 ¼ Tsp Baking Powder
- · 100g Unsalted Butter, cold
50g Whitworths Caster Sugar
- · 175ml Whole Milk, plus extra for brushing the tops
- · Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan and line a baking tray with greaseproof baking paper or a silicone mat.
- · In a large bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.
- · Chop up the butter into small cubes and rub it into the flour using your fingertips until you have a fine breadcrumb consistency. There should be no lumps of butter remaining.
- · Stir in the sugar.
- · Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk. Mix together until a dough is formed.
- · Dust your work surface with flour and work the dough into a smooth ball.
- · Roll out the dough until its 2-3 cm thick.
- · Using a 2.5 inch round cutter, cut out 8 circles of dough. Halfway through cutting, you will probably have to re-work the dough into a ball and roll again.
- · Place the rounds of dough onto the prepared baking tray, leaving a gap between each.
- · Brush the tops of the dough with a little milk.
- · Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden.
- · Remove from the oven and cool the scones on a wire rack.
