Ingredients

Servings:-11+
350 g Self raising flour
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
85 g butter
3 tbsp sugar
175 ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
egg (to glaze)
  • Step 1/6

    • 350 g Self raising flour
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • 1 tsp baking powder

    Tip 350g self-raising flour into a large bowl with ¼ tsp salt and 1 tsp baking powder, then mix.

  • Step 2/6

    • 85 g butter
    • 3 tbsp sugar

    Add 85g butter cubes, then rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs then stir in 3 tbsp caster sugar. Leave in fridge while heating milk.

  • Step 3/6

    • 175 ml milk
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    Put 175ml milk into a jug and heat in the microwave for about 30 secs until warm, but not hot. Add vanilla extract.

  • Step 4/6

    Make a well in the dry mix, then add the liquid and combine it quickly with a cutlery knife – it will seem pretty wet at first.

  • Step 5/6

    Scatter some flour onto the work surface and tip the dough out. Dredge the dough and your hands with a little more flour, then fold the dough over 2-3 times until it’s a little smoother. Pat into a round about 4cm deep.

  • Step 6/6

    Brush the tops with a beaten egg, then carefully place onto the hot baking tray. Set oven to gas 7 and bake for 10 mins
