|Self raising flour||8 Ounce (2 Cups / 250 Gram)|
|Baking powder||1 Teaspoon|
|Butter||1 1⁄2 Ounce (45 Gram)|
|Milk||4 Fluid Ounce (1/2 Cup / 125 Milliliter)|
1. Sift flour and baking powder together into a bowl. Stir in sugar, then using fingertips, rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Make a well in the center.
2. Whisk together milk and egg, pour into flour mixture and mix to form a soft dough. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly.
3. Using the palm of your hand, press dough out to 2 cm/3/4 in thick, then using a 5 cm/2 in cutter, cut out scones. Avoid twisting the cutter or the scones will rise unevenly.
4. Arrange scones close together on a greased and lightly floured baking tray or in a shallow 20 cm/8 in cake tin. Brush with a little milk and bake at 220°C/425°F/Gas 7 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
