  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan, 425°F, gas mark 7). Lightly grease a baking sheet.

  2. 2

    Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g Self-raising white flour
    • pinch Salt
    • 55g Butter (unsalted)
  3. 3

    Stir in the sugar and stem ginger and then enough milk to get a soft dough.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 25g Unrefined golden caster sugar
    • 2 Stem ginger drained and finely chopped
    • 150ml Milk (whole)
  4. 4

    Turn on to a floured work surface and knead very lightly.

  5. 5

    Pat out to a round 2cm thick, there is no need to use a rolling pin. Use a 5cm 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.

  6. 6

    Brush the tops of the scones with a little milk and a sprinkling of demerara sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes until well risen and golden.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150ml Milk (whole)
    • 2 tbsp Unrefined demerara sugar
  7. 7

    For an alternative flavoured scone try replacing the stem ginger with walnuts, a handful grated cheese or dried cranberries.
