Homemade Scones


I have never been fond of shop bought scones as they just never taste anything like homemade. Homemade scones are amazing, especially warm out the oven and covered with jam and a dollop of cream. You can't beat them! They're so easy to make, especially if you have a stand mixer as you don't even have to use your hands! This scone recipe was passed down to me from my mum, and they are the best scones I have ever tasted - a must try!

 
Recipe (Makes about 7-8 large scones)
1 pound Self Raising Flour + pinch of salt
4oz Margarine
2oz Caster Sugar (+4oz Raisins optional)
2 Eggs
Teaspoon of milk.
 
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees°C. Mix together the flour,sugar and salt and then rub in the margarine.
 


 
 
Whisk together the eggs and the milk and slowly add to the mixture, mixing whilst you pour.
 
 
It should now come together as a nice, smooth dough. The trick to a lovely, well risen scone is to roll it about an inch thick. You don't even have to roll it out seeing as you need it so thick, you could simply press it down to the desired thickness.
 
 
Cut out with a circle cutter of your desired size, and put onto a greased tray.
 
 
 
 Brushing the scone with some leftover egg/milk mixture before it goes into the oven helps the top to go nice and brown when cooked. Pop them in for about 20 minutes.
 
 
 And there you have it, beautiful homemade scones ready to enjoy straight from the oven. Spread on some jam and cream and enjoy! :)

  1. I just made these and they were delish!
    I had to add an extra half egg and some more milk because the mixture was a bit dry. I also divided it into 3 and did a batch of plain, raisin and cheese! Yum! *****
