Ingredients (makes 6)

  • 450g Organic Self Raising Flour
  • 100g Organic Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 300ml Organic Milk

traditional Be-Ro scone recipe

....cream or jam?

Some of our favourite organic suppliers:

Method

  1. Start by pre heating your oven to 180degC

  2. Chop the Organic Unsalted Butter into approximately 20mm cubes and place into your mixer

  3. Add half of the Organic Self Raising Flour and mix until you have a breadcrumb like mixture

  4. Whilst continuing to mix, add the remaining Organic Self Raising Flour and Organic Milk, a little at the time, until you have a slightly sticky dough.  Note: you may need to add a little more Organic Self Raising Flour/Organic Milk to achieve the correct consistency

  5. Roll the dough out to a thickness of 25mm and cut your scones, using a cookie cutter, to approximately 65mm in diameter.  Note: if you don't have a cookie cutter, a glass of a similar size will be absolutely fine

  6. Place on a lined tray and brush the tops with milk before baking for 30 minutes

Once baked, either allow to cool or enjoy warm....maybe with a large dollop of clotted cream, topped with seedless strawberry jam and a side of fresh strawberries?
