Scones – Recipe No 116


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..


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.
