Simple Scone Recipe


If you got a chance to make some of the jam from my previous posts you might like something tasty to serve it with. Well this scones are really easy and very tasty so they're perfect for the job. My mammy has been making these for use for years and they're a family favorite. The basic recipe is from a Darina Allen recipe book she received as a wedding presents, with some adjusments. If you'd like to make a batch you'll need the following:

900g flour
170g butter
3 teaspoons of baking powder
425 ml milk
3 eggs
60g castor sugar
Optional: raisins, currants and cherries

To start set your oven to 250°C. Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder. Rub in the butter with your fingers and fully mixed. Now we added raisins and currants but that's entirely optional, you could also add cherries if you like. Whisk the eggs and milk together, then add them to a well in the center of your mixture. Mix with your hands to make a soft dough. Scatter some flour onto your table and place the dough on top. Roll the dough out so you can scatter cutting out your scones. To make the scones you can use a scone cutter, a glass or just cut into squares with a knife. For a glaze, firstly dip your scones in egg, then milk and finally sugar. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes of until the scones are golden brown. Leave on a wire rack to cool. Then enjoy with butter or cream and plenty of your homemade jam.

Happy Baking!


  1. I wish that when I made anything I could photograph it. I make such a mess ~ big fan of scones though - these look yummy xx

  2. Oh my gosh, this looks divine. I could never take gorgeous photos like these while cooking. I'd probably eat these scones up before getting a chance to snap a photo, haha.
