Easy Scones

No fresh bread or rolls at home and craving for something fresh and easy for a Saturday breakfast© Little B made us some freshly baked scones this morning. It took her about 20 minutes altogether + additional 5 minutes to set the table.

225g organic plain white flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
60g slightly salted butter
25g caster sugar
150ml whole milk
1 free range egg, beaten

1. Heat the oven to 220C. Lightly grease a baking sheet if you don’t have reusable teflon baking sheets.
2. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder and rub in the butter that are cut into small squares.
3. Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough. Little B chose to use her hands… Very messy and a lot of fun!
4. Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round. Use a knife lightly cutting it in 4 and place on a baking sheet.
5. Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.
6. Cool on a wire rack and serve with butter and homemade jam.

Wish you all a happy weekend!

  1. How do I convert this to American measurements and oven temperature? Love your web-site. Thank you

  2. I have made these scones twice now and love them. But I am noticing that the time is taking 20 minutes or more on 340degrees F. Wondering if my measurements are off: I am using 1.5 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour, 1/8 cup sugar, and 3/4 cup milk…..would you say those are about accurate?

    Thanks for this recipe; whatever the time it takes to bake them for me, they are a wonderful and EASY addition to my repertoire. Oh and BTW, I’ve been baking for my sister and her new born baby. 🙂
