When you want a treat for afternoon tea, this is the scone recipe to bake! It is flavoursome, light, and just the right partner for summer strawberries.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan, gas mark 6). Grease and flour a baking sheet.

  2. Sift together the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar.

  3. Add the buttermilk and egg and combine together. Knead the dough briefly to even out the texture.

  4. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out the dough on a floured surface to a depth of approximately 1cm thick. Use a floured 5 cm cutter to cut out 12 scones, re-rolling the dough if necessary. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

  5. Cool on a wire rack. Serve cold or warm with sliced strawberries and cream.

    Replaced baking soda with baking powder and were perfect! I think they got the 2 mixed up in the recipe!

    Used self raising instead of soda and plain flour. Much better!

    I made these scones but there was a taste of soda in them. Maybe reduce it to half Spon?
