  1. 1

    Turn the oven on to 220°C (fan 200°C, gas mark 7). Grease a baking sheet by rubbing it with a little butter.

  2. 2

    Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Rub in the butter using your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and salt.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g Self-raising white flour plus extra for rolling out
    • 1tsp Baking powder
    • 40g Butter (unsalted) cut into cubes and chilled
    • ½ tbsp Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • Salt
  3. 3

    Use an ordinary knife to mix in the milk, a little at a time, until the mixture starts to come together. Sprinkle a little flour on the work surface and tip the dough out of the bowl.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150ml Milk (whole) plus extra for glazing
  4. 4

    Put a little flour on your hands and very lightly knead the mixture for half a minute until it is smooth.

  5. 5

    Gently form the mixture into a ball and lightly pat it out to about 3cm thick. Dip a round cutter in flour and cut scones out from the dough. Put the scones onto the baking tray, spaced a little apart.

  6. 6

    Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk. Put the scones into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes until risen and golden. Remove scones from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
