Scone cake


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Then add the butter and rub with your fingertips, as you would when making shortcrust pastry, until it resembles breadcrumbs. 
  • Whisk the eggs and milk in another bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in the milk and mix with a wooden spoon and then knead to form a soft dough, adding a little more flour if needed. Then form the dough into a loaf shape (not too high) and place on a lightly oiled baking tray. Cut the top into 8 wedges and cook in the oven for about 20-30 mins until golden and risen, and a skewer comes out clean from the centre.
  • Serve with your favourite jam and whipped cream on the side.

  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tspn sea salt
