  1. Preheat an oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Rub the butter into the flour mixture with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk together the egg, milk, agave nectar, lemon zest, lemon juice and ginger in a separate bowl; stir into the flour mixture until moistened.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, for five or six turns. Pat or roll the dough out into a 1cm-thick round. Stamp out scones with a cutter or slice into 8 wedge-shaped pieces and place onto the prepared baking tray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
