Create your own afternoon tea at home with the family and try making freshly baked scones - the star of the show and perfect served with jam and cream.

Follow our quick and easy recipe below.


450g self raising flour
½ tsp salt
100g cold butter diced
85g caster sugar
280g semi skimmed milk
2 tsp vanilla extract


Heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade.

Mix the flour, salt, sugar and butter together until an even crumble.

Add the milk until it comes together into a smooth dough (do not over mix). If you want to add dried fruit, you should add it now and mix lightly, or you can keep the scones plain.

Roll the dough out until 4cm thick and cut out with a 6cm cutter.

Place evenly onto a nonstick tray. Lightly egg wash.

Cook for 10-12 minutes in the oven. Cool on a wire rack and serve when still warm.
