Servings 5 scones


  • Baking tray
  • Pastry cutter 7-9cm


  • 240 g self-raising flour
  • 40 g cold butter cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 150 ml milk
  • 2 handfuls sultanas


  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees C
  • In a large bowl, rub the butter into the flour until it looks like fine breadcrumbs
  • Add the sugar and stir well
  • Add the sultanas and stir for even distribution (add more or less depending on how fruity you like your scones)
  • Pour in the milk and stir thoroughly until all the liquid is incorporated
  • Flour your hands and pull the ingredients into a soft dough
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to 1 inch thick (2.5cm) ( you can do this with your hands - no need for a rolling pin)
  • Cut out rounds with a 7-9cm pastry cutter
  • Pick up the remaining dough and knead gently together to roll out again until all the dough is used
  • Place on a baking tray that is greased, or lined with baking parchment
  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until risen and golden brown
  • Place on a cooling rack
  • Best eaten while still warm!
