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.


Qty Ingredients
450g Allinson Self-raising Flour
2 tsp Baking Powder
75g Butter, At Room Temperature
50g Billington's Golden Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
225ml Milk

Clotted Cream


  1. Lightly grease two baking trays. Preheat the oven to 220°C / 200°C / gas mark 7
  2. Place the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the butter and rub together using your fingertips until you reach a crumble, then add the sugar.
