  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3ml salt
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 120g butter, cubed
  • 180ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. cream
  • 50ml milk, for brushing
  • 125ml cream
  • Choice of jam


Preheat the oven to 200°C.

Grease a Le Creuset 30cm Buffet Casserole. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients using your fingertips, until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Mix the milk, eggs and cream together. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix together using a cutting motion with a knife to form a dough.

Divide the dough into 8 even-sized balls. Arrange these in the greased Le Creuset Buffet Casserole. Brush the scones with a little milk and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. If the scones are darkening too much, place the lid on the casserole to finish off the cooking.

To serve:

Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Serve scones on Le Creuset Tea Plates with jam and cream.
