• 450g Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder, level
  • 80g Kerrygold Salted Butter, room temperature, cubed
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 75ml Semi Skimmed Milk


1. Preheat the oven to 210C/190 C Fan/Gas Mark 6. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.
2. Add the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and rub through the butter until fine breadcrumb like consistency.
3. Whisk together the eggs with the milk before adding to the breadcrumb mix (save a little back for glazing) to form a soft dough,
slightly sticky is okay at this stage.
4. Knead on a floured surface before rolling out to a 2cm thickness. Use either a straight or fluted round cutter to form the scones.
Glaze with egg wash before baking on the middle shelf for 12-14 minutes until golden and risen.
5. Allow to cool for 10-15 Minutes on a wire rack before eating. Serve with your favourite jam and clotted cream.
