Ingredients

  • 250 grams plain flour (+ 2 tbsp)
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 50 grams butter (chilled and cubed)
  • 175 milliliters semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 jar cherries (drained)
  • jam
  • clotted cream

Directions

  1. To make the scone dough, mix together 2 cups flour plus the sugar, salt and baking powder in a large bowl. Rub the butter into the mixture so that it resembles crumbs. Add the milk and mix with the dough hook of a mixer until smooth. Cover with cling wrap and leave in a cool place for 15 mins. Mix the remaining 2 tbsp of flour with the cherries then add to the dough and knead well on a floured surface.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 350°F. Roll dough to about 3/4-inch thickness and, with a 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 10 circles. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Whisk the egg and brush over the scones then bake for 15 mins. Cool on a wire rack. To serve, split the warm scones and fill with jam and mascarpone.
