Sift the flour and the baking powder. If you don't want to do this, just mix them with a fork.
Rub and mix the flour and butter together by hand.
Add the sugar. If you are adding dried fruits, sesame or chocolate, do so here.
Add the milk, mix very quickly and bring the dough together.
Roll the dough out to a 2cm thickness and cut out the scones with a cutter. If you don't want to do this, just cut the dough with a knife.
Bake them in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes.
Story Behind this Recipe
My British friend taught me how to make scones. I lessened the ingredient amounts so they were easier to make, and they turned out surprisingly crispy and moist.
Mix the flour and butter evenly so the texture is like breadcrumbs. This is the main point! Cut out the shapes with a sharp cutter. The final result will be fluffier! If you want the scones to be very moist, use more milk. If the dough doesn't come together easily, let it rest in the fridge first.
