What could be more British than a classic afternoon tea and of course the star of the show, the might scone? Add a twist to your favourite bake, by infusing English Afternoon Tea in to your scones, then serve with your jam of choice and a large helping of clotted cream.

450g Allinson Self-raising Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
75g Butter, At Room Temperature
