Fresh Strawberry Scones

Having bought a small pot of strawberries for The Boy to sample (his face was one of utter disgust when he put them in his mouth this morning), l fancied making a fruity treat for our Saturday breakfast. I found a lovely little recipe for Strawberry Scones in a book entitled “Bread” by Anne Sheasby. She suggests adding cinnamon, which is inspired. These were so tasty with a smattering of cream cheese and a mug of Yorkshire tea this morning. Even whilst being covered in half masticated strawberry by my beloved offspring.


225g self raising flour

25g caster sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

a pinch of salt

100g fresh strawberries, chopped

55g butter

125ml milk (plus extra for glazing)


1) Add flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and mix lightly.


2.) Dice butter and rub into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.


3.) Stir in sugar and chopped strawberries.


4.) Add enough milk to mix a soft dough, and turn it out onto a floured surface.IMG_5400

5.) Pat out the dough until it is about 2cm thick, and cut out 12 rounds (l used a glass!).

Brush the tops of the scones with milk.
