This scones recipe is the perfect thing to have up your sleeve for those surprise moments … like when guests arrive unannounced. Scones are so easy to make and taste so good. And the ingredients are so basic, you probably already have them all on hand anyway. I used to buy self-raising flour but nowadays, I only buy plain flour in bulk and add baking powder to make my own as required. So unlike other scone recipes, you don’t need self-raising flour for this scones recipe.

Makes 10 (approx. 200 calories per serve)

Prep time 20 mins
Bake time 10-15 mins

Ingredients
300g plain flour
5 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar
75g salted butter, cubed (if you don’t have salted butter, just add normal butter and 1/4 tsp salt)
150ml milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

Tip: While my go-to for whipping cream is a Thermomix, you can also whip it just as easily with a handheld mixer like this one. Mix on high and angle your bowl slightly so more air can get through and whip on medium to high speed until stiff – approximately 5 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220C (or 200C fan-forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Mix together the plain flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Gradually add the milk and vanilla essence and knead into a smooth ball. Flatten to approximately 2cm thick and cut out approximately 10 x 5cm rounds.

Place the dough rounds on to the baking paper and bake for 10-15 minutes until it starts to brown at the edges.

Cool for 5 mins before serving with clotted cream and jam of choice (not included in calorie count). I used apricot jam to use up what we had in the fridge at the time.

Note: if making clotted cream in Thermomix, simply place a butterfly whisk into the mixing bowl, add your full thickened cream (works best with 200-600g amounts) and whisk on speed 3 for 1-2 mins until the right consistency is reached. Avoid using light thickened cream.
