I did the Paul Hollywood recipe today that uses 5tsp baking powder and string bread flour. I was dubious but they were great grin

i made a nigella recipe which uses cream of tartar instead of baking powder. they were delucious & light, but I kind of prefer a crumblier scone.
agree with last post & also handle the dough as little as possible.

I don't have a best recipe as such, but my tips would be to use butter milk rather than ordinary milk, to put in loads of baking powder, and to roll the dough out to no less than two centimetres thick. It works for me ...

Mine always turn out like rock buns, too small and too hard. Please share your best scone recipe.
