  • 375g self-raising flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 75g cold butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing
  • 175ml milk, plus extra for brushing
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • Clotted cream to serve

For the jam:

  • 200g raspberries
  • 200g caster sugar


  1. To make the jam, preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4 and clean and sterilise a jam jar.
  2. Place the raspberries and caster sugar in an ovenproof dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, then give the mixture a stir and continue cooking for a further 10 minutes. Allow to cool lightly before spooning into the jar.
  3. To make the scones, preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6 and grease a baking tray.
  4. Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder together into a mixing bowl and add the sugar and butter and rub together until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Mix in the milk to make a dough, and knead a little until it becomes smooth. Roll the dough out on a lightly-floured surface to about 1cm thick and cut out about sixteen 5-6cm rounds.
  6. Put the dough circles on the prepared baking tray and brush with a little milk. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10-12 minutes until risen and golden.
  7. Serve the scones with the jam and some clotted cream.
