Prep Time: 15 min
Servings: 18 small scones
Cooking Time: 15-20 min
  • 4 - Earl Grey teabags
  • 60ml - boiling water
  • 875ml - cake flour, sifted + extra for rolling
  • 125ml - sugar
  • 20ml - baking powder
  • 125g - cold butter, cubed
  • - 1 egg
  • 180ml - milk + extra for brushing
  • - butter, to spread jam of your choice whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper and grease with non-stick cooking spray.

1  Scones Put the teabags in the water and steep for 15 minutes. Remove and squeeze out excess liquid.

2  In a large mixing bowl, add the flour, sugar and baking powder and mix lightly. Add the butter and gently rub it into the flour mixture – the mixture should resemble breadcrumbs.

3  Add the Earl Grey tea, egg and milk and mix until just combined.

4  Scoop the dough out of the mixing bowl and onto a flour-strewn

surface. Lightly roll out the dough until it’s about 3cm thick. Cut out 5cm scones with a glass or cookie-cutter.

5  Arrange the scones on the prepared baking sheet and brush with a bit of milk.

6  Bake the scones for 15-20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

7  To serve Cut each scone in half and spread with butter. Add jam and whipped cream and serve.
