Classic English Scones are an essential for afternoon tea. Follow this easy recipe for perfect plain scones or add fruit or toasted pumpkin seeds for a different twist. We made the mixture using the Dualit Hand Mixer with the dough blades.

Shopping List:

  • 300g self-raising flour
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 75g salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 100g natural yoghurt
  • 100ml milk or buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder or bicarb of soda

  • 1/2 cup sultanas

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (160C fan).
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces then mix in the flour, salt, sugar and bicarb of soda until breadcrumbs are formed.
  3. Combine the milk/buttermilk, egg and yoghurt together and pour into the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Mix together along with the sultanas then slowly, on speed one, combine until a soft dough forms (do not overwork the dough).
  5. Remove the dough and place on a floured surface.
  6. Gently press down and cut the scone shapes with a cutter and then place on a floured baking sheet.
  7. Brush the tops using an egg wash or milk.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 mins.
  9. Whisk double cream and serve with Tiptree strawberry jam.

​Tips:

  • You can use milk instead of natural yoghurt
  • Add cherries, blueberries, raspberries or toasted pumpkin seeds for a different twist
  • For a savoury scone add grated cheese to the mixture or on top
