Scones. ‘Sconns’. ‘Scoanes’. How ever you like to pronounce it (to rhyme with ‘cons’ is my personal preference), scones rule! They are quintessentially English, so that’s a good start, but they also taste amazing, particularly when smothered with jam and clotted cream.

**Baking time: 190c/375F for 15-20mins**

500g plain flour (plus extra for dusting)
2 rounded tsp baking powder
2 heaped tbsp of caster sugar
1 tsp salt
110g chopped cold unsalted butter
300ml whole milk
1 egg

Optional extras
Clotted Creeeeeeeam

  3. Rituja B says:

    If I wanted to make savory scones, can I just eliminate the sugar? Or does the recipe need something in its place? If so, what do you recommend?

  9. Ying Yan says:

  10. Ellite Equine says:

    the thing i hate about Jemma is that she wastes alot of food. whether its not scraping the bowl, throwing away food that is perfectly edible and delicious just for a video(see her perfect cupcake video), or being too lazy to not reroll/reuse dough….

  11. Maria Jose Flamarique says:

    I'm in ready to put them in the oven and i don't find time or temperature. Anybody HELP

  20. Ashlie Neevel says:

    Sacrilege! She put the jam first

  21. Teriser Bacchus says:

    I love it

  22. Michelle Crowder says:

    Made these beauties and I must say, in all my years of making ‘ok’ scones, these were the best ever!!!

  23. Jean Runyan says:

    This is the second scone recipe I tried. This is the first time the flour and butter was crumbly, just the right texture described. But both times, when I add milk, the dough just entirely becomes too runny. I am measuring everything correctly. Ended up adding about an entire other cup of flour to get the dough into a consistency that would allow me to shape it. Currently waiting for them to come out of the oven but I've a feeling it will be more like bread or biscuits. What am I doing wrong?

  24. Rory says:

    Must be amazing to have a partner who is a professional baker. Mmmmmm

  25. Honey Chopra says:

    Could their be a replacement for egg

  26. Andrew Wilson says:

    Just put all the trimmings on a baking tray and cook with the scones. Get some interesting and tasty snacks.

  27. atomic_ creeper says:

    Mme Ferlay ouais ouais

  28. Linda Mallia says:

  29. kalpana Sadanandan says:

    I tried this scone recipe. It was perfect. Thanks.

  30. Panda Bamboo says:

    Thank you for the recipe, they came out lovely!

  31. Cam Cam says:

    I tried this recipe but I think 300 mis. of milk is way too much, hence, my batter was very runny. Epic fail!!

  32. Akane says:

    so she just threw away the dough because it’s not as good…? I’m horrified… you’re not running a bakery, you’re cooking for yourself

  33. mingzybaby says:

    Recipe doesn’t work. Plain flour with only 2 teaspoon of baking powder doesn’t rise.

  34. Aesthetic Blossom says:

  37. Chassummer Sonatina says:

    Did I miss the temperature of the oven?

  38. Shelley Symons says:

    it said 2 tsp od baking powder, however it looks as though 2 tbsp have been added? I followed the 2 tsp and mine hardly rose at all?!

  39. Josephine Lo says:

    You didn’t say oven temp and time?! 😰
