Granny Tess' Scones

This is the recipe me and my family have been using for years. Given to us from Granny Tess these are always a crowd pleaser. Perfect for a cuppa tea or when you have friends over celebrating a British event like the coronation!

Course: Afternoon Tea
Cuisine: British
Keyword: Family Favourites
Servings: 7 Scones


  • 225 self raising flour
  • 80 g butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 30 ml of butter milk
  • Clotted cream
  • Strawberry Jam


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
  • Place the flour into a bowl along with the cold cubed butter. Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add your sugar and a pinch of salt and mix.
  • Crack one egg into a separate bowl and add the buttermilk. Beat together until smooth.
  • Add the liquid into flour mixture and mix until it forms a smooth dough. Be careful not to overwork the dough as it will lead to a tougher scone.
  • Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and roll to the thickness of 1 inch.
  • Using a circular cutter, cut out the scones and then with the excess pastry bring it back together with your hands to cut out the last few scones.
  • Place the scones on a lined baking sheet, brush the tops with egg wash and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • They are ready when they are risen and golden brown.
  • Serve with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
  • Enjoy!
