  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 220°C (200°C fan, gas mark 6). Grease and flour a baking sheet.

  2. 2

    Sift together the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 200g Plain white flour
    • 1 Salt
    • 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda
    • 50g Butter (unsalted) chilled, diced
    • 2 tbsp Unrefined golden caster sugar
  3. 3

    Add the buttermilk and egg and combine together. Knead the dough briefly to even out the texture.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 50ml Buttermilk plus extra for glazing
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range) beaten
  4. 4

    Using a floured rolling pin, roll out the dough on a floured surface to a depth of approximately 1cm thick. Use a floured 5 cm cutter to cut out 12 scones, re-rolling the dough if necessary. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

  5. 5

    Cool on a wire rack. Serve cold or warm with sliced strawberries and cream.
