These fruit scones are an English classic and are wonderful served slightly warm with home-made strawberry jam, clotted cream and a pot of tea!

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7) and line a baking tray with baking parchment.

  2. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and add the sugar and butter, rub together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs then add the sultanas.

  3. In a jug beat together the egg and milk then pour into the bowl and mix using a round bladed knife until a dough forms, then knead a little with lightly floured hands until smooth. Add a little more milk if necessary if the dough seems dry.

  4. Press or roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about 3-4cm, then using a 5cm round cutter cut 8 scones.

  5. Place these on the baking tray, leaving about 5cm space in between, brush the tops with a little milk then bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown and risen.

  6. Cool on a wire rack, then to serve split and top with jam and cream.
