4 tips on baking the best scones…

1.When making scones cover freshly baked ones with a slightly damp tea towel, as this will help to keep them light and soft.

2. Leave scones for a minute before you pop them into the oven as resting them allow the baking powder to become active.

3. The secret to the flakiest scones is to start with cold ingredients — cold butter, cold eggs, and cold cream.

4. For the lightest scones, opt for using pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour.
