Ingredients

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Lightly grease a baking tray.

  2. Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.

  3. Stir in the sultanas, sugar and then the milk to form a soft dough.

  4. Turn onto a floured work surface and knead very lightly. Pat out to a round 2cm/¾in thick. Use a 5cm/2in cutter to stamp out rounds and place on a baking sheet. Lightly knead together the rest of the dough and stamp out more scones to use it all up.

  5. Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Bake for 12–15 minutes until well risen and golden.

  6. Cool on a wire rack and serve with butter and good jam and maybe some clotted cream.
