Freya’s DIY Scones

A British delicacy perfect for a week filled with dramatic changes in the British psyche, not only with a new government, but also the birth of a new royal baby, Princess Charlotte.

Scones are amazingly quick and easy to make – the perfect way to procrasti-bake (my favourite kind of baking). The recipe makes ten to twelve scones.


–          225g flour

–          5ml (one teaspoon) of baking powder

–          2.5 ml salt

–          25-50g butter

–          150 ml of milk



1.       Turn the oven on to 180 degrees, and pre-heat a baking tray.

2.       Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl.

3.       With your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

4.       Make a well in the centre of the mixture.

5.       Slowly add the milk. Stir the mixture together to create a dough.

6.       Roll out the dough until it is 2cm thick. If you don’t have a rolling pin – use an empty wine bottle. #studentcooking

7.       Use a cookie cutter to make individual scones, and then glaze the top of each of the scones with either a little butter or egg.

8.       Cook in the oven for ten to twelve minutes until the top is golden brown.

9.       Pipsqueak!


A very happy (and the coolest) flatmate enjoying some delicious scones.
