About this recipe: These scones are far from plain, they lightly sweetened, soft, fluffy and delicious. Serve with lashings of butter or clotted cream and jam. They are perfect for afternoon tea.

  1. Preheat oven 220 C / Gas 7. Dust a baking tray with self-raising flour.
  2. Sieve flour into medium bowl, add caster sugar. Using your fingertips, rub butter into the mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
