These scones will make anyone’s day that little bit nicer. Very easy to make and you will be glad you put the time into making these little lovelies. The addition of French lavender makes this classic scone recipe just perfect!

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups self raising flour

1 tablespoon caster sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

30g butter

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup water

2 teaspoons French lavender

 

Yield

16 scones

 

Instructions

1. Preheat over to very hot (250ºC). Grease a deep 19cm square cake pan.

2. Sift flour, sugar, and sald into a large bowl, add lavender then rub in butter with fingertips.

3. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture; add milk and almost all of the water. Using a knife, ‘cut’ the milk and water through the flour mixture to form a soft, sticky dough. Add remaining water only if needed for correct consistency.

4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead quickly and lightly until smooth.

5. Use hand to press dough out evenly to 2cm thickness.

6. Dip a 4.5cm cutter into flour; cut as many rounds as you can from the piece of dough. Place scones side by side, just touching, in prepared pan. Gently knead scraps of dough together and repeat pressing and cutting out of dough. Place rounds in prepared pan; brush tops with a little extra milk.

7. Bake scones in a very hot oven for about 15 minutes.
