Tips for making Scones, savoury or sweet

So people are often scared of making scones? This I don’t really get?

They are so Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy 🙂

But there a a few tips:

  1. Use very cold butter
  2. Do not overwork – meaning just pull the dough together
  3. Roll once – again don’t overwork
  4. Brush only the tops with milk (not the sides)
  5. And for these make sure you use some good strong Cheese


So lastly how do you pronounce scone?

Oh so many views!

There are two possible pronunciations of the word scone:

the first rhymes with gone and the second rhymes with tone.

In US English the pronunciation rhyming with tone is more common.

In British English the two pronunciations traditionally have different regional and class associations, with the first pronunciation associated with the north of England and the northern working class, while the second is associated with the south and the middle class….

So which are you?  🙂

Makes: 8 scones

  • 280g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 115g fridge-cold butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 120ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Three quarter cup of strawberries cut into eighths
  • Half cup of granola for ingredients and sprinkling.

Preparation Method


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, 180 fan.
  2. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and put to one side.
  3. Put the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  4. Cut the butter into small pieces and rub in using your fingers or a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  5. Add handful of granola.
  6. Stir in cut strawberries until covered in flour.
  7. In another bowl whisk the egg, double cream, honey and vanilla extract.
  8. Pour into the flour mixture and stir until dough begins to form.
  9. Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead gently until a ball forms but don’t over-knead or stir. Pat the dough into a round until it’s about 1.5cm thick and cut into 8 even wedges.
  10. Place on the baking sheet and sprinkle with the granola.
  11. Bake for 20 minutes, although check a bit before, just in case; you want them golden brown.
  12. Once baked, place on wire rack to cool.
  13. Best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, these yummy scones bring a taste of summer to even the drizzliest April afternoon!
