If you want something to nibble on with your afternoon tea or coffee this would be it, Buttermilk Tea Scones with butter, jam, and a clotted cream.

What is the secret of making good scones?

  1. Use good quality ingredients.
  2. Self-rising flour is already salted, so if you’re using self-rising flour, be sure to use unsalted butter.
  3. Don’t soften your butter.
  4. If it’s hot in your kitchen, freeze your butter before making scones.
  5. Cut your butter into cubes.

What do the British put on scones?

 Scones are most commonly made either plain or with raisins and sultanas. Although they can be enjoyed with any topping, the Brits traditionally enjoy scones as part of a cream, or afternoon, tea. Generally, scones are topped with clotted cream and jam – usually strawberry.

Scones

The scone is a basic component of cream tea. It differs from teacakes and other types of sweets that are made with yeast. A scone is a baked good, usually made of either wheat or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent, and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash.[1] The scone is a basic component of cream tea. It differs from teacakes and other types of sweets that are made with yeast. Scones were chosen as the Republic of Ireland’s representative for Café Europe during the Austrian Presidency of the European Union in 2006, while the United Kingdom chose shortbread. 

And I made soft, delicious scones for tea. Scones are a delicious favorite in our home.
