Perfect white scones

These scones go so well with a cup of afternoon tea or coffee and you can curb that sugar craving with a little bit of jam, yum!

What you’ll need:

  • 500g plain white flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 120g butter
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 250ml buttermilk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1tsp baking powder

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 250°C.
  2. In a large bowl sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Rub in the butter until a crumb-like texture is achieved.
  3. Beat the eggs with the buttermilk and add the sugar.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the flour and mix until a dough is formed.
  5. Add more buttermilk if the mixture seems dry.
  6. Put the dough onto a floured work surface and using a scone cutter make out your scones.
  7. Glaze each scone with a little beaten egg and sprinkle of sugar.
  8. Place on a floured baking tray and put into the oven for 15mins or until golden.
  9. Serve with butter and jam.
