Delicious scones with sultanas


  • 400g self-raising flour
  • 120g cold butter
  • 284ml buttermilk (1 pot)
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 6 tbs caster sugar
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 100g sultanas (soaked in hot water)
  • Pinch of salt


  • Mix the salt, soda, flour and butter in the bowl (until looks like crumbs), add the sugar, mix well together.
  • Add the buttermilk, milk and sultanas and combine to form a dough.
  • Press it onto the surface to form 3-4 cm thick dough.
  • Cut out scones with cutter (we use 5 cm one), brush them with milk.
  • Arrange the scones on a baking sheet and put them in the oven (200°C/180°C fan assisted).
  • Bake until well golden (10-15 minutes).
  • Serve with clotted cream and jam of your choice (we love them with raspberry)
