I'm an european living in NZ. We invited some British friends for the afternoon tea. I was looking for an easy scons recipe, as I never backed them before. I tried this one and it has become an instant success! I've made them several times since then, we just love this scons with jam and cream. And they are realy easy to make. ( I use food processor)

this is the base to many amazing scones - my fav is cin/sultana, just add to this recipe 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup of sultana's. keep dough quite wet do not knead to much just till combined. makes light scones. Yummy!!!!!

great recipe. I like to add 1 cup of cheese and about a 1/4 of a onion, finely chopped and microwaved for 1 minute in about 15gms of butter to soften. Delish!

Good basic recipe, just like my grandmother used to make. Only thing I did different was instead of mixing dry ingredients, butter and milk with knife I rubbed the butter in with the dry ingredients and then added milk. Seemed much easier and was the way my grandmother showed me to do it. I added one cup of grated cheese and it worked really well, nice subtle cheese flavour. Thanks for reminding me how to make proper scones!

best scone recipe in the world. My fav for savory is to add a cup of grated cheese, half a cup of grated zucchini and a handful of sliced sundried tomatoes mmmmm

I have almost the exact recipe from an English cookbook. It uses 1/2t salt instead of 1/4. I usually add a tablespoon of sugar. It is so simple to make and delicious! Thanks for posting!

This is a staple in NZ homes! Classic, no fail recipe. I too, add cheese and bacon or serve with jam and cream. You can't go wrong here!!

This is fantastic. I have been away from NZ for three years and this is one of my favourite recipes. I do add extras like a cup of cheese and a tsp of herbs for a savoury scone. And for a sweet version - I love topping these with jam and whipped cream. Thanks for posting this - Excellent.
