Recipe: The Perfect Scones for Afternoon Tea!

Hello gorgeous!

If there's anything I love doing and could never get enough of, it's afternoon tea. I have a little shelf in our kitchen cupboard filled with different kinds of tea, from peppermint, pomegranate, raspberry and strawberry to Earl Grey and your ordinary English tea. Call me grandma, but I love it.

And what better baked treat to have with your trea than some classic homemade delicious scones generously topped with jam and fresh cream? Carry on reading for the recipe!


225g Self raising flour
Pinch of salt
55g Butter
25g Caster sugar
2 teaspoons of Cinnamon
150ml Milk
Dried fruits (raisins)

Heat the oven to 220C/425F and lightly grease a baking sheet.

Mix your flour and salt together and rub in the butter. Add the cinnamon and mix in. Stir in the sugar and then the milk to get a soft dough. Add in the raisins as to your preference. 

Spread some flour onto a clean kitchen surface and knead your dough very lightly. Pat your dough out to around 2cm thick. You can then break off little pieces of dough, roll them up and place them on your baking sheet. 

Bake them in the oven for 12-15 minutes until they're well risen. You'll know they're ready when they're perfectly golden and crispy on the top! Easy as that!

You can serve them warm or cold, with the jam of your choice, butter or cream and anything else you like! I had some redcurrants on the side and of course, a yummy cup of Earl Grey tea!

If you happen to bake your own, do take a photo and send it to me on Twitter or tag me on Instagram! What are your favourite teatime treats? Let me know down below!

I hope you enjoyed,
