My mother and I spent a week trying different scone recipes and this is the one we came up with. It was a Frankenstein of bits and pieces of the recipes we tried--we wrote it on a card and it's the only scone recipe I use now.

Ingredients

  • 450 grams all-purpose flour
  • 46 grams sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 75 grams butter, cold and cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 115 mL cream, plus a little more to brush the tops

Method

  • STEP 1
    Preheat oven to 190, 170 fan, Gas Mark 5.
  • STEP 2
    Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into mixture with a pastry cutter.
  • STEP 3
    Whisk together cream, egg, and vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until combined, being careful not to over-mix.
  • STEP 4
    Transfer to a lightly-floured surface and knead the dough gently 4 to 5 times and then pat into a 15 cm round. Use an upside-down glass to cut the dough into rounds. Spread these onto a cooking sheet, about 5 cm apart. Brush the tops with a little cream.
  • STEP 5
    Bake for about 15-18 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack then serve immediately or freeze.
