And if you fancy making your very own scones, we have a super easy recipe here for Cornish-inspired versions. Follow these simply steps and serve with strawberry jam and cream for the perfect afternoon pick-me-up.
- 500g plain flour
- 15g baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 100g caster sugar
- 100g Rodda's Farmhouse Butter, diced
- 250ml milk
Method1 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.
