Stay Fresh Scones

scones1Don’t know why these are called stay-fresh; they never last long enough in our house to find out how good they are at staying fresh!


  • 500g self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 2 rounded teaspoons baking powder
  • 60g melted butter


  1.   Sift dry ingredients into a bowlscones2
  2. Add beaten egg, milk and butter
  3. Quickly combine all ingredients into a dough
  4.  Gently roll out to required thickness (about 2cm)
  5. Cut circles using medium size round cutter
  6. Stand scones close together on a greased baking tray for a further 15 minutes
  7. Bake at 210C for 10 minutes

 Handy Hints:

  • Dough will be fairly sticky.
  • When working with dough try not to add too much extra flour
  • For a savoury scone to serve with soup, add herbs and grated cheese to mixture ( a mixture of tasty and parmesan cheese would be nice), you could also add some paprika for extra flavour
