These aren’t actually scones, they are a light little cake. They are so simple and easy to make, and everyone loves them. If you haven’t inherited a set of gem irons you may be lucky enough to pick some up at a second-hand shop or garage sale. Alternatively you can use shallow patty tins instead, heating them in the oven first.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
45g butter, softened
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 egg
150g self-raising, sifted
a pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk

Method

  1. Grease gem irons or patty tins and heat them in a 200°C oven.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat until well incorporated.
  3. Lightly fold in the sifted flour and salt with the milk, and combine until just mixed. Spoon enough mixture to half-fill the gem irons or patty tins. Bake for 10–15 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool. Serve warm with small squares of good chilled butter.
