Directions

Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly dust a flat baking tray with plain flour.

Sift self-raising flour into a large bowl.

Using your fingertips, rub butter into flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre. Add 1 cup of milk.

Mix with a flat-bladed knife until mixture forms a soft dough, adding more milk if required.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface.

Knead gently until smooth (don't knead dough too much or scones will be tough).

Pat dough into a 2cm-thick round. Using a 5cm (diameter) round cutter, cut out 12 rounds.

Press dough together and cut out remaining 4 rounds.

Place scones onto prepared baking tray, 1cm apart.

Sprinkle tops with a little plain flour.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden and well risen.

Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with jam and cream.
