How To Make English Scones
There's nothing more delicious, or quintessentially English, than a cream tea of scones, jam and cream. Here's how to make the perfect English scone.
Step 1: You will need
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Sieve into a bowl 900 g plain flour with 3 tsp baking powder. Add 56 g of caster sugar and mix.
Break the butter into cubes, add rub into the dry ingredients. Keep going until the mixture is the consistency of bread crumbs.
Whisk 3 eggs together with 450 ml of milk. Gradually stir into the dry ingredients until it comes together as a soft dough.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead lightly.
Use a floured rolling pin to roll out to about 2.5cm thick.
Cut out the scones and lay onto a baking sheet lined with grease proof paper. Brush with the left over egg wash and place in oven for 15 minutes.
Serve with jam and cream.
