Classic Scones with Jam & Clotted Cream

Share

Is there anything more British than Classic scones with jam & clotted cream? This is my grandmother’s recipe and it’s one that I love to make whenever I feel homesick and lonely. When I sit down to one of these scones, warm from the oven and slathered with clotted cream and topped with jam, I feel like I am back in my grandmother’s kitchen. Bliss!

Start by mixing the dry ingredients together. Slightly heat some milk and add vanilla and lemon juice. Make a well in the center of the dry mix and pour in the liquid. Bring the wet and dry ingredients together quickly with a knife. It will seem quite wet at first but don’t worry – that’s normal. Turn out the dough and cut out 8 scones. Bake and enjoy!

To make Classic scones with jam & clotted cream, you will need the following ingredients:

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Sprinkle extra flour over the dough and dust your hands with a little more flour. Fold over the dough 2-3 times until it’s a little smooth. Do not knead. Pat into a round disc about 1½ inches high.

Cut out scones

Using a 2-inch cutter, cut four scones from the dough. Press what’s left of the dough back together to cut out four more scones.
