Simple Scones

I don’t know about you, but I love a scone. I don’t even care if you pronounce it wrong (clue: it rhymes with gone!)

They are also, happily, super easy to make! And they are another one that you’ll probably have the stuff in for if you are partial to a spot of baking now and again. It’s also an easy recipe to cook with kids, and takes hardly anytime at all.

Kids might get in the way mind…

Simple Fruit Scones
Quick and easy fruit scones.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12-15 minutes
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12-15 minutes
  1. Gather your ingredients and put oven on to 220C/425F/Gas mark 7
  2. Get minions to help with the weighing
  3. Mix the flour and salt, then add the butter and rub it in. It's easier if you chop up the butter - rub the mix through your fingers until there are no lumps of butter left. Whack your sultanas in (recipe amount a guide line, you can see how many are going in and decide if it looks like a good proportion yourself)
  4. Start adding the milk and use a butter knife to bring the mix together. If it's really sticky, add a bit more flour until it's a soft dough.
  5. Plop the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and pat it down to about 2cm thick.
  6. You can use a shape cutter for the scones, or if you've lost them like us you can use a knife to cut the dough into squares then round them off. Put on a greased tray and brush with milk
  7. Depending on the ferocity of your oven, the scones will take 12-15 minutes. I took ours out at 13 as some of the edges had started to catch, so check at 12!

  1. My nan always used to make scones for ‘afternoon tea’ when we visited but I have never tried making them myself, and looking at your recipe I have all the ingredients, except sultanas (but I do have raisins – will they be ok ?) and they look pretty quick and easy to make so I might give them a go – I let you know how I get on !!!

  2. These look yummy! Perfect to go with strawberry jam and Rodda’s Cornish Clotted cream – might have to go an make some as I have a pot of cream in the fridge!
