How to make scones

This week we have been working on adding detail to our sentences so that our audience can follow our recipe easily. Check out Mathews recipe for scones:

Scones are an English type of bread which are very popular and they have been eaten for hundreds of years. The British upper class take their scones very seriously and follow rules about how to eat them. This recipe makes 6 small or 4 large scones.

Plain flour, for the dusting
1 ½ cups self raising flour
½ cup milk
40g butter


First wash your hands and get ready to cook.

Add the flour and butter into a big bowl. Rub the ingredients together
between your fingers and mix it and it will become like breadcrumbs.

After that, add some milk slowly to the centre of the bowl to make sure it doesn't get too sticky

Then you knead the dough on a floured tray and shape it into small balls. You should be able to make six small scones.

Put the scones on a baking tray and make sure you don't touch them too much because it will make the scones tough to eat.

Put the tray in the oven at 200 degrees celsius and then it the scones will be ready to be eaten in 20-25  miniutes

You might like to eat them with cream, butter and or jam. Traditionally they would be eaten with tea. Why not have a tea party and have a go at following tradition British Etiquette? There are tips in the video below!
