Everyone loves a classic English tea time, scones, clotted cream, jam and a raised pinky finger makes for the perfect afternoon. Scones are an easy recipe and I think everyone should try it! Forget paying loads for afternoon tea at the Dorchester, just have your own little get together!

What you need:
225g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
30g caster sugar
55g butter
55g raisins or sultanas
150ml milk

What you do:
1) Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
2) Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar in a bowl, then rub in the butter with your fingers until the mixture reaches a breadcrumb like consistency.
3) Stir in the raisins or sultanas.
4) Slowly add the milk until you have a firm dough.
5) Turn out onto a floured work surface. Pat the dough into a circle about 15mm thick and cut out the scones, using a scalloped edged cutter.
6) Place onto a non-stick baking sheet and brush the tops with milk.
7) Bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve with butter, or jam and cream.

How easy was that?! Send us in your afternoon tea photos 🙂 and enjoy!

Keep it delicious!
