Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 220C. Lightly grease baking tray.
  2. Put the flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add sugar to the flour mixture and gently combine using your fingertips.
  4. Gradually add milk into the flour mixture using a blunt knife to combine. Continue to add the milk until it is all mixed to a soft, sticky dough (you may not need all the milk, so ensure you add this in slowly as opposed all in one go).
  5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and work in the sultanas, if using. Roll out to a rectangle about 2cm thick.
  6. Cut into as many rounds as possible with a fluted small to medium sized cutter and place them on the prepared baking tray.
  7. Lightly beat your 1 egg yolk and gently brush the tops of the scones only, this will ensure your scones have a nice golden brown colour once ready.
  8. Place into oven and bake for 12–15 minutes, or until the scones are well risen and a golden-brown colour. Lift onto a wire rack to cool. Eat as fresh as possible.
  9. To serve, split the scones and top with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
