  • 2 cups of flour
  • 4 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons of salt
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 egg that has been beat
  • 3/4 of a cup of milk
  • 1 egg


  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 measuring cup
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 greased tin

Heat oven to 400 deg F.

Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

Add butter and rub in with fingers until there are no crumbs.

Beat egg lightly ; pour into a measuring cup, and add milk.

Add liquid slowly to dry ingredients while mixing. You should have a soft dough, but not wet or very sticky.

Sprinkle flour on a wooden board or flat surface.

Pat out with fingers until about 1 1/2 inch flat.

Press out rounds about 2 1/2 inches across.

Gather excess dough and repeat process.

Beat extra egg well.

Put the scones on a greased tin, use a pastry brush and brush the scones. Bake for about 13 minutes until well risen and golden-coloured.

Let cool, then they are ready to eat!

  • 100 grams of self-raising flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 50 grams of suet, shredded
  • cold water – approximately 5 tablespoons


  • a mixing bowl
  • wooden spoon ( or another type of spoon )


Slowly add the flour, suet and salt all into the mixing bowl.

Add the water – a little at a time – mixing until there is no lumps. You should end up with a thick dough.

Divide the dough into eight pieces, use flour on your hands to shape the dough into balls about the size of a golf ball.

Place the dumplings on top of the casserole or stew, allowing enough room for them to expand.

Cover with a lid and cook in an oven at around 150°C / 130°C fan / gas mark 2 – or simmer on the top of the stove – for 20 minutes or until the dumplings are tender.

You can add them to a soup and then they are perfect to eat!
