About the bake
The key to a light scone is a light touch. To rub in, lift the mixture to get some air into it, and as soon as it is of the right consistency, stop. This handy video about how to rub butter into flour will walk you through this process step by step. A basic scone mix is versatile and easy - one bowl, no cutters or rolling, just bake and share.
Once you have mastered how to make scones, pair yours with jam and clotted cream.
