Ingredients

225g self-raising flour, plus extra for rolling out

1 level tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

55g butter, chilled and cut into small cubes

50g caster sugar

150ml milk (approx.)

2x 113g cartons Asda Clotted Cream

340g jar Asda Extra Special Strawberry Conserve

Method

1
Pre-heat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
2
Stir in the sugar. Reserve 1 tbsp milk and add the rest to the flour all at once. Mix to a soft, but not sticky, dough. Lightly flour your hands and bring the dough together, handling it as little as possible.
3
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and pat to a thickness of 2cm. Lightly flour a 5cm pastry cutter and cut out as many scones as possible. Put onto two greased baking trays, leaving a gap between each scone. Gather the remaining dough together and repeat until used up.
4
Brush the tops with milk. Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen and golden. Cool on a wire rack until just warm, or leave to go completely cold.
5
Serve with clotted cream and jam.
