My mums scones are so easy to make and so delicious – go on treat yourself to afternoon tea!
Makes 12-15 scones
200g or 8oz self-raising flour
50g or 2oz butter cut into small pieces
50g or 2oz caster sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs beaten
Milk to mix
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees.
Grease a large baking sheet.
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Rub butter into flour so that it resembles breadcrumbs.
Add sugar and eggs and gradually add milk and mix with a knife or your hands to make a soft but not sticky dough.
Place in the oven for approx 10 minutes until lightly brown on top.
Allow to cool on a cooling rack and then serve with butter, strawberry jam and whipped double or clotted cream – angels kisses as my dad would say!
