How to make scones

Scones are an English treat. They originated from Europe and were very popular during the 1880’s. Scones can be eaten with jam, whipped cream butter/margarine or even tea. This recipe will make 6 small scones.


Plain flour, for dusting
1 ½ cups of self raising flour
½ cup of rasins (optional)
40 g butter, chilled & cubed
⅝ cups of milk
Whipped cream
Large Bowl


1. Before you start make sure you wash your hands and that your hair is tied back.

2. Pour in the flour into a large bowl that is clean
3.Add small chunks of butter and rub it into the flour with your fingers untill it looks and feels like crumbs

4.Make a mini circle or well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the milk in slowly.
5.Mix & knead the mixture until it becomes or turns into dough
5.Heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Now place the small balls of your dough onto a flat pan or oven tray.

6.Bake it for 20-25 minutes and it should be ready to eat with any spread that you want. For example, butter, jam and whipped cream

There is also a special way that the british eat it. Here is a video to show how they do it

  1. Hi Davarni,

    Ka pai - you have included heaps of information and description about how scones can be made and eaten. Next time we will work on editing our writing to make sure that we have used academic english and complete sentences. I really like that you included the video at the end and the ideas about the protocol or rules about eating scones!
