Notes & Tips

Serve halved with Jam and whipped cream on top.
If you are baking on more than one tray, swap the trays over for the last couple of minutes so that the bottom tray of scones can brown too.

Scones are the perfect snack to have with your morning tea for any occasion.

Bake the scones in the oven until they're golden brown and fragrant. Serve them warm with a dollop of butter or jam, or enjoy them on their own.

Simple scones are a versatile pastry that can be adapted to suit any taste preference. If you're feeling extra adventurous, try adding in different flavourings such as lemon zest or vanilla extract, or savoury ingredients such as cheese and herbs. With a few basic ingredients and some creativity, you can make delicious and satisfying scones at home.
