Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C fan-forced (356°F).

Step 2

Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Add in the butter, using your fingertips rub the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Make a well in the centre and add 1 cup of milk. Add the milk all at once. Use a round-bladed knife to mix together using a cutting motion until evenly incorporated and the mixture begins to hold together. If the mixture is too dry add a little more milk until dough reaches desired consistency (soft dough).

Step 4

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently for 4-5 minutes until the dough is smooth. Do not over knead the dough. Over working the dough will result in tough scones.

Step 5

Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the dough until it is 2cm thick. Then with a 5cm round pastry cutter cut the scones out of the dough and place each scone on a lightly floured baking tray 1 cm apart.

Step 6

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and well risen. Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm with butter or strawberry jam and lactose free cream.
