1tsp baking powder
85g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
3tbsp caster sugar
175ml whole milk
1tsp vanilla extract
Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Beaten egg to glaze

1. Heat oven to 220c. Tip flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl and mix.
2. Add the butter and rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine breadcrumbs
3. Stir in the sugar
4. Put the milk in a jug and heat in the microwave for approx 20-30 secs. Then add the vanilla extract & lemon juice.
5. Make a well in the dry mix and add all of the liquid. Mix it using a cutlery knife. Place the dough onto a floured surface and fold a few times. Pat into a round shape about 3cm thick.
6. Using a 5cm cutter, cut out as many scones as you can.
7. Glaze the top of each one with the egg and bake in the oven for 10mins
8. Enjoy with clotted cream, jam and tea : )
