Scones - Savoury and Sweet

We like to have scones as an alternative to sandwiches for lunch or as a dessert with cream and jam - yummy! This is a basic recipe that you can have either savoury or sweet. They don't take long to make either so are perfect for a last minute picnic or party.


8oz self raising flour
2oz butter
150ml milk
2oz cheese/sugar

  • Preheat the oven to around 180 degrees.
  • Combine the flour and butter in a bowl and add the milk gradually to form a dough.You can add the sugar OR cheese too here.
  • Split the dough into 8 balls and place on a lightly greased baking tray.
  • Pop in the oven for about 20 minutes until the scones are browned lightly.
  • Scoff!
