Fluffy Scones

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Lalaloula

These are the fluffiest scones Ive ever made. They are so light and rise a lot, too. The key to getting them that way is to handle the dough as little as possible. You can also turn them into fruit scones by adding a desired amount of dried cherries, cranberries or raisins.

Very good and easy! The measurements I used were 1/2 cup butter, 3/4 cup milk and 3/4 cup water. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F.
  2. Sift flour, baking powder and salt into a big bowl. Using your finger tips work in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center.
  3. Whisk together milk and water and pour into the well reserving some liquid for glazing the scones.
  4. Quickly stir until a dough forms.
  5. On a lightly floured surface pat down gently and cut out scones (I use a glass of 7.5 cm in diameter). The dough will be kinda sticky, but you should be able to form it without problems. If not, add some more flour.
  6. Glaze scones with reserved water-milk-mixture and bake for 10-12 minutes.
