How To Bake Scones With Self-Raising Flour

A scone is a small unsweetened or lightly sweetened cake made from flour, fat, milk and sometimes added fruit.
Self-raising flour is a mixture made up of regular flour, baking powder, and salt. You can make your own by combining 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt.
While it's similar to all-purpose flour, self-raising flour isn't as rich in protein as all-purpose flour. Also like all-purpose flour, self-raising flour is enriched with added nutrition. It also contains salt and baking powder that has been distributed evenly throughout the flour and acts as a leavening agent.

  • oven


  • self-raising flour
  • salt
  • baking powder
  • sugar
  • unsalted butter or salted butter so that you really have to check your salt usage.
  • vanilla essence or any other preferred flavour
  • egg
  • butter buttermilk


  • Gather all ingredients
  • Preheat oven
  • Grab a large mixing bowl and sift your self-raising flour, salt, and baking powder using a sifter.
  •  Using your fingertips fold in the butter until the mixture is crumbly ( like breadcrumbs).
    This ensures that your baked scones have a finer texture and you do not end up with lumps of flour in the scone.
  • In another small mixing bowl, whisk together your egg, sugar, buttermilk, and vanilla essence. Mix well.
  • Flour a baking tray and then roll out your dough on a clean surface and cut it using a scone cutter and place the scones on the baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl, whisk another egg and use it to brush the top of each scone.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the scone is light brown on the top and has risen.
  • And your scones are ready.
