By Sheffieldgirl



  • 125g self-raising flour

  • 50ml milk

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 75g wholemeal spelt flour

  • 100ml sour cream

  • 50g butter cubed


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Add the butter to the bowl and rub together to make fine bread crumbs.
  3. Mix together the sour cream and the milk and add to the bowl. Bring the mix together into a dough. If the dough seems dry add another 1/2 tablespoon of milk to make a soft smooth dough that will leave the bowl clean. It's important not to overwork the dough or the scones will be heavy.
  4. Turn the dough onto a floured surface. Roll it out evenly to about 3cm thick. Cut the dough using a round cutter (9cm for medium scones or 6cm for small scones). You may need to re-roll the dough to make all your scones.
  5. Place the scones on a floured baking tray, brush the tops with milk, (you could sprinkle some grated cheese on top of the scones) then put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the scones have risen and are a nice golden brown colour.

Handy Hint

Serving suggestion: Mix cream cheese with a squeeze of lemon juice and chopped dill, top with
smoked salmon.
