Scones (adapted from The Guardian)

  • 175 grams all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 50 grams butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • large pinch of salt
  • 50 – 60 ml of milk
  1. Preheat oven to 190 C. Line a small baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  3. Rub butter into flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Work fast as the mixture should be as cold as possible.

  5. Roll or pat out to 1.5 cm thick. Cut with a 6 cm fluted cutter.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and well risen.
