My Mum’s Scones

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.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1.5cm. Make the scones by using a round cutter and place on the greased baking tray and then brush with milk.

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!
