What you’ll need:
250g self raising flour, plus extra for dusting
1tsp baking powder
1 beaten egg
Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/ gas mark 7. Line a baking tray.
Sift your flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt into a bowl, mix in the sugar. Cut your butter into cubes, and using your fingertips, rub it into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Gradually add the milk until the mixture forms a dough. Flour a worktop before lightly kneading the dough on it. Cut out your scones (recipe makes 12).
