Scones with home-made Strawberry Jam

These egg free scones are delicious and crumbly and taste just amazing with Cornish Clotted Cream and home-made Jam. Perfect for a teatime treat!

Cooking time: 12 minutes

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Makes 10 Scones (using a 4cm cutter)

The Ingredients:

For the Scones

  • 335g Self Raising Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 75g Unsalted Butter cut in to cubes
  • 75g Caster Sugar
  • 150ml Buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp Milk
  • Clotted Cream to serve

For the Jam

  • 300g Strawberries
  • 50g Cater Sugar

The Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 220C/Gas Mark 7
  2. Sieve the Flour and Salt in to a bowl and add the cubed butter
  3. Rub the butter into the flour and then stir in the sugar
  4. Add the Milk to the Buttermilk and pour into the bowl
  5. Mix the ingredients together until it resembles a soft dough
  6. Flour the surface and place the dough on to the side and pat until it is approximately 2cm thick.
  7. Cut the scones out using your pastry cutter and re-pat the scone mix to make more scones
  8. Place on some baking paper on a baking tray and ensure they are spread out
  9. Brush the tops of the scones with a little Buttermilk or Milk
  10. Cook in the oven for approximately 12 minutes,  the scones should look golden on top
  11. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack
  12. To make the Jam, add the Strawberries and Sugar to a pan and add 2 tablespoons of water. Simmer for approximately 10 minutes until the Jam looks like syrup. You can make this whilst the scones are in the oven.
  13. Serve the Scones with some Clotted Cream and home-made Strawberry Jam

For fruit Scones just add a small handful of Sultana’s or (my favourite) Glacé Cherries.

    I discovered about 5 years ago that I was allergic to egg, I have eczema and i’m allergic to just about everything…nuts, milk, egg, beans, to name but a few, and I craved scones, these scones were great, little crunchy on the outside and lovely and cakey in the middle, just how I love them. I know what I really really miss though, Doughnuts, I so want some doughnuts.

    Well done with this recipe and thanks

    I have just made these using gluten free flour and rice milk, no fruit as we like to add our own flavours with the jams – cannot wait to see how they turn out – My next batch I will use dairy free spread – I want to make them as allergy free as possible!! Brilliant recipe though and never fails me thanks x

    Hi,
    Fortunately I’m not allergic to any foods , grass pollen gets me sneezing but not much else. I made some of your eggless scones, they were very good, I just ran out of eggs and it was too much effort to brave the rain and the wind to go and fetch some, I found your blog some time ago and had a good read. To be honest I don’t think anyone noticed the difference, they were delicious.

    Thanks for all your work with the recipes
