No-butter scones

Recipes by Suzanne Gibbs
  • Serving size: Serves 10 or more
  • Cooking time: Less than 30 minutes

1. Preheat oven to 220°C (220°C fan–forced). Lightly grease and flour a baking tray. Sift flour and ¼ teaspoon salt into a medium bowl and make a well in centre. Lightly whisk milk, yogurt and oil together in a small jug. Add to flour, stirring quickly with a round-bladed knife, to form a soft dough, adding a little more milk if necessary.

2. Drop heaped tablespoons of dough onto prepared tray, 3cm apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until risen and golden. Serve warm with jam.

Tip: Add a little grated orange or lemon rind or mixed spice to these easy-to-make scones.
