Intro: English Scones

With only three ingredients these Scones are incredibly easy to make and are perfect for afternoon tea or any sort of get together.

This recipe makes about 16 Scones

Step 1: What You'll Need

Ingredients

Some plain flour to coat your working surface

Scones

  1. 2 Cups of Self raising flour
  2. 1 Teaspoon of caster sugar
  3. 300ml of Thickened Cream

Toppings

  1. Jams
  2. Whipped cream
  3. Butter
  4. Honey

Equipment

  1. Large mixing bowel
  2. Various measuring cups/spoons
  3. Mixing spoon
  4. Rolling pin
  5. Round Pastry cutter (6cm)
  6. Baking tray
  7. Cooling rack
  8. Oven

Step 2: Creating the Dough

Reminder

Before creating the dough it would be best to now preheat your oven to 180C (350F)

Mixing time

To make the dough simply combine the measured amounts of flour, sugar and cream in the large mixing bowl and mix with a large mixing spoon until you form a soft uniform dough, make sure that all the ingredients are well combined.

Step 3: Cutting Into Shape

  1. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough into a ball and then flatten it out with a rolling pin to a thickness of about 1 inch (about 2.5 cm).
  2. Cover a baking tray with a single piece of baking paper (greased side up)
  3. Use a rounded pastry cutter dipped in flour to cut the dough into uniform circles and place them onto the baking tray.
  4. Re-Roll out the dough as needed to get as many circles as possible.

Step 4: Baking

Bake the Scones in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Once they are done remove them from the baking tray and place them onto a cooling rack.

Step 5: Serving

These scones can be served hot or cold with a number of toppings.

My favorite would be freshly whipped and Strawberry Jam!

Thanks for reading!

Enjoy!

    These look great! Do you think I can freeze them either before or after baking?

    I'm sure you can freeze them after baking, I'm not sure about before though

    Being a through and through English person I can attest to the greatness of an English scone with cream and strawberry jam. However it should be clotted cream. Reputabley there are 2 ways to construct. The Devon way, cream then jam on top , or Cornish way - jam with cream on top.
    I think it would be best to try both many times to decide which you like.

    Should also be accompanied by a cup (not mug) of hot tea. Ps. Never coffee!

    Looks yummy! Is caster sugar the same as granulated? And would thickened cream be heavy whipping cream?

    It's actually "superfine" sugar. Not powdered/confectioner's sugar (10x superfine), but it's finer than granulated. Throw it through a small food processor/coffee grinder for ~30sec and it'll be fine. It's just supposed to melt into things more easily.

    Well these may not be full English like the man said, but our American scones are a sorry concoction of highly sweetened dough with sugar sprinkles on top. These look absolutely super in comparison.
