Spring Week Food: Scones

Day 2 of Spring Week and I’m bringing you the food of the season, scones.

Now to be honest I love scones all year round, but there’s something about a cream tea in spring that just can’t be beaten! But forget waiting for the weekend to head to a cafe, homemade scones are even better, so here’s my spring time scone recipe!


200g Self Raising Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking Powder
2 tbsp Caster Sugar
40g Butter
50g Sultanas (optional)
1 Egg
5 tbsp Milk


  • Pre-heat the oven to 210 degrees C (fan) and place in a tray lined with baking paper.
  • Place all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and stir. 
  • Rub the butter into the flour mixture using the tips of your fingers, until a fine breadcrumb has formed.
  • Add the sultanas and stir. 
  • Create a well in the mixture and add the egg and milk. 
  • Using a wooden spoon quickly mix it all together until the dough starts to form. 
  • Place the dough on a floured board and kneed lightly. 
  • Roll out the dough to the thickness of 2cm. 
  • Using a round cutter, cut out as many scones as you can (average of 6). 
  • Put them on the pre-heated trays and bake for 8-10 mins. 
Once they’re out of the oven and cooled slightly starts the tricky bit, jam or cream first? Either way they taste delicious and you’ll be going back for seconds!

    another debate: is it a 'skon' or a 'scone' ?
