Richo’s quick and easy scones


3 cups self-raising flour

1 ½ cups cream

1 tablespoon icing sugar

A splash of milk

Butter, jam and whipped cream (to serve)


In a large bowl, sift together the flour and the icing sugar.

Using a spoon, make a well in the centre.

Pour in the cream while stirring.

Mix together gently until a dough forms.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured bench or board.

Dust with flour.

Gently roll out into a slab approximately 4cm thick.

Cut into squares approximately 5cm x 5cm

Place on a tray lined with baking paper.

Brush with milk (this will give the scones a nice golden crust).

Bake in pre-heated oven 200°C for 25 minutes.

Serve with lashings of butter, jam and whipped cream.
