Buttermilk Scones With Sugar Tops Recipe

Adding some crunch and smoothness to your scones, the crunch from the sugar and the smoothness from the buttermilk – giving your scones a creamy edge

Serves 12-15mins to prepare, 12mins to cook

500g self-raising flour
1tsp baking powder
50g (2oz) caster sugar
100g butter, diced
284ml pot buttermilk
Milk, for brushing
Caster or demerara sugar

Heat oven to 220C,200C fan, gas 7 and grease a large baking sheet. Tip the flour into a large bowl and stir in the baking powder, sugar and 1/4 tsp salt. Rub the butter into the flour mixture with your fingertips until it is completely incorporated then stir in the buttermilk with the blade of a knife to make a soft dough.
Tip onto a lightly floured work surface and pat out with your hands until about 4-5cm thick. Stamp out rounds using a small, floured cutter then place the scones on the baking tray, spaced apart. Brush with milk, scatter with sugar and bake for 12 minutes until golden.
