Scone recipe

Prep Time: 25 mins, including bake time.

Makes 10 scones

  • 2,5 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch salt large
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp orange rind grated
  • 1 orange juiced
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. Set oven to 230C and preheat.
  2. Zest the orange and put aside in a bowl.
  3. Sift flour and salt, then rub in butter. Add sugar and orange rind.
  4. Squeeze the juice from an orange, then measure 1/3 of a cup and add it to the milk.
  5. Stir this liquid into the dry ingredients, making a soft dough.
  6. Turn onto a floured surface, knead lightly and roll into desired thickness. Don’t over-roll as they will be a little tougher than you need. Cut into 3-4cm rounds.
  7. Sprinkle tray lightly with a little flour, then place scones close together.
  8. Glaze scones lightly with a milk-wash if you’d like.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes.

Enjoy with a spread of lightly salted butter or slightly sweetened whipped cream.
