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!
