I have yet to try this recipe out myself, but it's from a reliable old recipe book. Hope it turns out well with your try :)

Makes 12

2 Cups Self-raising flour
pinch of salt
30g Butter, cut into small pieces
1/3 Cup Caster Sugar
1/4 Cup Sultanas /Raisins
1 Egg, lightly beaten
3/4 Cup Milk
extra milk for glazing

1. Preheat Oven 210'C. Brush oven tray with butter/oil. Sift flour & salt into a large bowl. Add butter & rub in lightly with fingertips.

2. Add sugar & sultanas and stir to combine. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Add egg & almost all the milk. Mix quickly, with a flat bladed knife to a soft dough. Adding more milk if necessary. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface & knead briefly until smooth. Press or Roll out to form a round about 2cm thick.

3. Cut dough into rounds using a floured plain 5cm cutter/ cut into squares using a floured knife. Place scones close together on prepared tray & brush with extra milk.

4. Bake for 10-12mins or until golden brown. Served with butter & jam!
