Blessed by @sylviabay with these homemade scones from her kitchen – decided to have it with my daughter’s berry yogurt sprinkled with raspberry powder AND a cup of milk. So comforting.

I’ve used her recipe in an old-school post from before – Mr. Earl Grey Scone, but also sharing the recipe here.

Recipe for Basic Scones

30g caster sugar
½ tsp salt
80g unsalted butter (cold)

1 tsp vanilla essence (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 220C
2. Mix flour, sugar, salt in a bowl or place in a food processor.
3. Cut butter into cubes and rub in with fingertips or place into food processor and process until breadcrumb-like texture is achieved.
4 . Add milk with vanilla essence gradually and fold or process to form a soft dough.
5. Turn dough onto a floured work surface.
6. Knead gently and roll to 2.5cm thickness.
