These scones are the absolute dream! They can be on the table in 20 minutes, using store cupboard ingredients. 


  • 350g self raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 85g butter
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 175ml milk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Beaten egg


  • Heat oven to 220c / gas 7.
  • Mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. 
  • Add the butter, then rub in with your fingers until the mid looks like fine breadcrumbs. 
  • Stir in the sugar. 
  • Put the milk into a jug and heat in the microwave for about 30 seconds. 
  • Add the vanilla to the milk. 
  • Put a baking tray in the oven. 
  • Make a well in the dry mix, then add the liquid and combine it with a cutlery knife. It will seem pretty wet at first.
  • Scatter some flour into the work surface and tip the dough out. 
  • Scatter the dough and your hands with some more flour, then fold the dough over a couple of times until it is smoother.
  • Pat it into a round about 4cm deep. 
  • Cut the round into 6 even triangles. 
  • Brush the tops of the scones with the beaten egg, then carefully place on to the baking tray. 
  • Bake for 12 minutes until risen and golden.
