How do I get Scones to rise and be fluffy?
- Use good quality ingredients.
- First, make sure you’re using fresh baking powder, one that has been opened less than 6 months ago.
- Don’t soften your butter as cold butter makes scones rise higher.
- If it’s hot in your kitchen, freeze your butter before making scones.
- Measure your flour, DO NOT scoop it with the cup as this will cause that you pack the flour into the cup and you’ll end up with too much flour.
- Cut your butter into cubes.
- Also, if you knead the dough too much, the scones won’t rise as tall.
- Knead gently, and just enough to bring the dough together, so mix gently, do not over mix. Avoid over-mixing the dough. Too much stirring will toughen your scones.
- Adding more flour also prevents the dough from rising as high, so only dust lightly.
- Keep the scones as cold as possible until they are ready to go into the oven. This will make them rise better.
- Make sure your oven is fully preheated before baking the scones.
The most accurate way of measuring flour would be to weigh the flour on a kitchen scale.
- One cup of white flour weighs 125 grams.
- One cup of whole wheat flour weighs 140 grams.
- One cup of bread flour weighs 130 grams.
- One cup of cake flour weighs 114 grams.

I also love scones! My grandmother used to make them perfectly! I have, however, almost given up on cakes, biscuits and other baked goods, in the name of good health. I might make an exception for a tasty batch of scones though! Thanks for this recipe, it looks great!

Dear Laurie, Glad you like it and hope you will have time to try and enjoy it as well.
I love a scone, saving this recipe. Are you jam or cream first?
Jam on the scone and topped with cream, delicious
Same for me!
For me in any case, it will be impossible to spread jam on cream 🙂
