Ingredients

  • 85g diced butter
  • 350g self-raising flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 200ml milk , warmed to room temperature, plus a splash extra
  • crushed sugar cubes , to decorate

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Whizz butter into flour. Tip into a bowl and stir in salt with bicarbonate of soda and sugar. Using a cutlery knife, quickly stir in milk – don’t over-mix.

  • STEP 2

    Tip out onto a lightly floured surface and turn over a couple of times to very gently bring together with your hands. Gently pat to about 1in thick, then stamp out rounds with a floured cutter. Pat together trimmings to stamp out more. Brush the tops with a splash more milk, then scatter with crushed sugar cubes. Bake on a baking sheet for 10-12 mins until risen and golden.
