Strawberry English Scones

  • Author: caroline

  • Yield: 4 scones 1x


Enjoy a traditional British cream tea at home with these beautiful Strawberry English Scones. Crumbly scones baked with strawberries. Serve with jam & clotted cream for a perfect afternoon treat.


  • 175g plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 large pinch of salt
  • 50g unsalted butter, plus extra for glazing
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 34 strawberries, sliced into small pieces (around 8 pieces from each strawberry)
  • jam & clotted cream, to serve (see note 3)


  • cookie cutter (5 or 6cm)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400 F
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large mixing bowl. Take the butter a bit at a time and rub it into the mixture so the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the dough and add the lemon juice, egg, milk and strawberries. Fold the dough from the outside into the middle to combine. Then mix the dough a few more times with your hands. You want the mixture to look rough so don’t over work it.
  4. Roll the dough out so it is around 4cm thick. You can use a rolling pin or simply flatten it out with your hands – scones are rough looking by nature. Take a 6cm round cutter and cut circles out of the dough. See note 1. Re-roll the remaining and cut more rounds until the dough is used up.
  5. Lay the rounds on a parchment lined baking tray and brush a little butter over them
  6. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy on the same day – either still warm or cooled. See note 2


  1. You can also use the bottom of a glass to do this.
  2. You can also freeze the scones – simply place in a freezer bag or wrap in clingfilm tightly.
  3. Jam & cream are not included in the calorie information
