Ready In:



  • Pre-heat oven to Gas Mark 5/375°F/190°C.
  • You will need a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Begin by sifting plain flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl.
  • Cut butter into cubes and rub into the flour mixture until it looks like crumbs.
  • Stir in the lemon zest.
  • Combine the beaten egg, vanilla extract and double cream in a small bowl.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.
  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly-floured surface and knead gently for 1 minute.
  • Divide the dough in half and roll each half of the dough into a 8 inch circle.
  • Spread jam on one of the rolled-out dough leaving about 1/2 inch border all around.
  • Place the second rolled-out dough on top of the jam layer, gently sealing the edges.
  • Now cut the circle into 8 wedges and carefully transfer them onto the baking sheet.
  • Make an egg wash of one beaten egg mixed with milk and brush the top of the scones with this mixture.
  • Bake on the centre shelf of the oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden browned.
  • Remove from oven and transfer onto a wire rack to cool.

    Another outstanding vote from me. I just love the lemon in this recipe. I trimmed the fat and sugar by replacing the sugar with Splenda, using 2 scant Tbsp of a heart healthy margarine, using egg white only and fat free coffee creamer for the double cream. My jam was no added sugar raspberry. I made it in one whole piece and baked that for 25 mins because I pressed the dough into an 8" circle on a Silpat like mat and didn't want to cut on that. Wonderful!

    These ar excellent! I used stawberry jam inside these for a lovely treat. The only "issue" I had was the jam seeped out bit, but that was because I was a bit over zealous with the jam. I did not knead the dough to even close to 1 minute to since I hear that over kneading scone dough can lead to dense and heavy scones. I just folded the dough over a few times and preceded with the rest of the recipe. It was a bit sticky and it was kinda hard to transfer them, but it was well worth it!
