When we grew up, we called these tea buns. If I remember correctly, they usually had raisins in them and there were most often served with butter and a cup of tea on the side. Somehow, over the years I have grown to call them scones. So whether you call them buns, biscuits or scones, they still taste delicious!
2 Cups/250 grams of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
1/3 Cup/40 grams of butter
2/3 Cup/160 ml of milk
1 Egg, lightly whisked for brushing
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a baking tray.
In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk lightly to combine. Cut in butter and use the tips of your fingers to incorporate it until it resembles a bread crumb mixture. Add milk all at once and stir until it comes together as a dough. Don't over mix.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and lightly press it out with your hands. With a small 2 inch circle cutter, cut out 8 scones. With a pastry brush, lightly brush the tops of the scones with the egg wash. Place on your baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.
