- 100g (4oz) self-raising flour
- 25g (1oz) caster sugar
- 25g (1oz) unsalted butter
- 3tbsp milk plus a little extra for brushing
Preheat oven to 220 C, 200 C fan oven, 425 F, gas 7. Sift the flour, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Rub in the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Mix in the milk to form a soft dough. Knead lightly on a floured board, then pat into a round 1.5cm (3/4in) thick. Cut into 2.5cm (1in) rounds with a small pastry cutter. Place on a greased and floured baking sheet.
Brush with milk and bake for 8 to 10 minutes until well risen and golden brown. Cool slightly and dust with a little icing sugar before serving with good quality strawberry jam and clotted cream.
