Cornish scones

© Rodda's


  • 500g plain flour
  • 15g baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g Rodda's Farmhouse Butter, diced
  • 250ml milk


1 Sieve flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a bowl.

2 Using just your fingertips, rub the butter into the flour until it is no longer visible.

3 Add the milk and mix well. Once it starts to come together, turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead gently until it forms a smooth, soft dough.

4 Preheat the oven to 200 degrees /Gas Mark 6.

5 Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2.5 cm thick and cut into rounds with a 5cm cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

6 For the egg wash, mix ingredients together in a small bowl and brush the tops of the scones twice.

7 Place in the oven to bake - do not over-bake them or they will be dry. They should be cooked until just golden brown.

8 Serve them warm with Cornish clotted cream and homemade strawberry jam.
