Yields1 Serving

Ingredients

 3 cups Self-Rasing Flour
 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
 90 g ButterCold and Chopped into small pieces
Extras
 1 Egg Yolk
 Dash of Milk

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 180C Fan.

2

Place your flour in a large bowl. Add sugar and butter. With your fingertips rub the butter and flour together. As you do this the mixture will get crumbly, somewhat like sand or breadcrumbs.

3

Add milk. With a knife or spatula mix until it starts to come together. On a light floured bench, place the dough and knead lightly. The dough is not soft, expect it to have some firmness to it.

4

Flatten the dough to a rough 2cm thickness. You can use your hands, a rolling pin, whatever is easier and most convenient to you. We used a 6cm cutter to make the scones but you can use anything between 5cm and 7cm.

5

Place your scones into a baking tray about 1 cm apart from each other.
*We used a stone tray and that doesn’t require us to use any baking paper or to flour the surface.
*Depending on the tray you use, flour, and butter the surface or use a piece of baking paper to prevent sticking.

6

Get your egg yolk and dash of milk and beat until combined. With a brush coat the top of the scones only (it will give them a nice golden finish).

7

Bake for 13-14 minutes.

8

Serve with Doulsi, cream and any other of your favourite jams!
