What you will need:

  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 50g unsalted butter

  • Set the oven to 220˚C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment or silicone paper.
  • Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl, then add the butter and “rub in” until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Stir in the sugar and raisins. Now add just enough milk to bind the mixture to form a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 20 -30 seconds.
  • Roll out to a thickness of 2-3cms. Then use a 6cm diameter fluted cutter to cut out rounds, and place on a baking tray.
  • Brush the tops of the scones with beaten egg and then bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes until golden and cooked.
  • Serve with jam and clotted cream.
