Scones – Recipe No 116


1940sscones

I was so glad I made some summer berry jam the other day because I had such a treat this afternoon enjoying fresh scones dolloped generously with some (and a fab mock cream).

Here is the simple recipe..

Scones

16 oz flour
2 oz butter
2 oz sultanas
a pinch of salt
2 piled up teaspoonfuls of baking powder
1/4 pint milk
2 oz sugar

Mix together the flour, salt, and baking powder; rub into the butter. Add the sugar and sultanas, and make up into a stiff dough with milk, using the tips of the fingers only. Roll out about one inch thick, and cut into rounds or mark into triangles with a knife to show where to divide when baked. Brush the tops with milk and bake in a hot oven (475 F) for about 20 minutes.

  1. Thank you, you just inspired me to make scones, I have around 1/4 pt milk on the turn and a jar of jam scrapings (the last tsp of several jam jars all mixed together). Way to go! BTW really looking forward to your opening of the wartime stuff shop!

    • Woo Hoo! I’ve eaten 5 scones in two days… that’s the problem with cooking scrummy stuff. I think I’m going to put the rest in the freezer right now!! 🙂

  2. The recipe was really easy to follow – thanks, however I needed to add a little more milk to get a dough consistency. Anybody else found this?

  3. Yes scones are a bit tricky to do I do mine with self raising flour and sometimes if you add to much liquid you get a wet mix that’s too sticky to handle.
