  • 225g/80z self-raising flour, plus extra for rolling/cutting
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 50g/2oz butter, cut into small cubes
  • 50g/2oz caster sugar
  • 150ml/1/4 pint of milk
  • 1/2 jar (370g) jar strawberry jam
  • 1 (227g) pot clotted cream


  1. Preheat oven to 200℃/Fan 180℃/Gas Mark 6. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.

  2. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and stir in enough milk to make a fairly dry dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead to remove any cracks, then gently roll or pat out to to about 2.5cm/1in thick.

  3. Stamp out 5cm/2in rounds using a fluted pasty cutter dipped in flour. Gather the trimmings into a ball, re-roll and cut into more rounds. Transfer to a baking sheet.

  4. Bake in a preheated over for 10-12 minutes until well risen and pale golden. Transfer to rack and leave to cool. Serve with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
