3 cups self-rising flour, sifted
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick cold butter, chopped
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 350 f
Place flour and sugar into a cooled bowl and combine.
Add the chopped butter using a fork to blend it into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Make a well in the centre and pour in milk gradually. Use a butter knife to gently mix the milk into the flour mixture until just combined.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently bring the dough together lightly with your hands. Avoid overworking the gluten in the dough (this is what makes scones Into Rocks). If it’s still a little flaky don’t worry. They will bake light and fluffy that way.
Drop the mixture into a square baking dish lined with grease proof paper and cut into squares.
Brush with a little extra milk (You can also sprinkle a little cinnamon-sugar) if you like.
Serve warm from the oven, with your favorite jam or marmalade.
