super quick, slightly spicy scones
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2.5 C self raising flour
  • 1 tbs white sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 30g butter
  • 1C milk
How to make it
  1. Toss the flour, sugar, salt and spices into a bowl and toss about a bit.
  2. Cube the butter and then tip it into the bowl as well, rubbing the cubes into the flour with your fingertips until it is rubbed in and there are no visible chunks of butter left (see video demonstration).
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mix and tip all of the milk in. Use a butter knife to cut the flour and milk together until it forms a sticky dough.
  4. Pat the dough out onto a floured countertop until it is somewhere about 2cm tall. Use a round cutter to cut circles of dough out.
  5. Pop the dough circles into a buttered baking dish, placing them so the sides just touch each other. Bake in a 220C oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Eat. Copious amounts of cream and jam preferred.
