Fresh Scones with Jam and Cream

Fill your home with the smell of freshly baked scones paired with jam and whipped cream with this deliciously simple scones recipe.

Ingredients (makes 16)

Plain flour, for dusting
3 cups self raising flour
80g butter, cubed
1 1/4 cups milk
Strawberry jam and fresh whipped cream

Method

1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour. Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.
2. Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
3. Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk. Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until smooth (don’t knead dough too much or scones will be tough).
4. Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds. Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart. Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.

Recipe Notes

Make the most of seasonal ingredients to make flavoured scones such as pumpkin, apple.
