  • Preheat the oven to 220C/450F/Gas 7.
  • Grease a large baking tray.
  • Place a sieve over a large mixing bowl. Sieve the flour, the baking powder and the salt together in a bowl.
  • Add the room temperature butter and rub into the flour etc mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the sultanas, sugar and eggs and stir through well.
  • Add the milk to the bowl a bit at a time and stir in until it forms a smooth, soft dough.
  • Lightly sprinkle a cool work surface with additional flour and remove the dough from the bowl.
  • Using a rolling pin to reduce the thickness of the dough to approximately 1 inch.
  • Use a 2 inch pastry cutter to cut out the scones and place them directly onto the greased baking tray.
  • (HINT put the blade of the pastry cuter into the flour before cutting the dough. It will make the blade cut through and not squash the dough)
  • Add the 2 additional eggs into a small dish and beat lightly.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush the beaten egg over the top of the scones, not the sides though.
  • Place the scone in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.
  • When ready remove from the oven and leave to cool a bit.
  • Ideally serve warm with clotted cream and strawberry jam for an amazing bite.
