“I serve these wonderful tea scones with homemade strawberry jam and Devonshire clotted cream and they are the highlight of the afternoon tea I serve my guests. Incredibly easy to make and fast to disappear. I hope you'll try them and if you don't have clotted cream available, serve whipped heavy cream with jam of your choice. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  3. Add the butter and blend the mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  4. In a bowl, beat together the egg and milk.
  5. Add this mixture, a little at a time, to the dry ingredients until a sticky dough is formed.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a round 3/4-inch thick.
  7. With a cookie cutter, stamp out rounds.
  8. (I use a drinking glass approx. 2" diameter) Transfer rounds to a greased baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 12- 15 minutes until golden.
  10. Serve with jam and cream.
