Makes 8


Ingredients

1 tablespoon icing (confectioners’) sugar

310 g (21/2 cups) plain (all-purpose) flour

11/2 tablespoons baking powder

A pinch of salt

250 ml (1 cup) milk

30 g (1 oz) butter, melted

To serve

Jam

Whipped cream

Method

Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F/Gas 7). Sift the icing sugar, flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add the milk and butter and stir to combine with a knife. Knead quickly and lightly until smooth and then press out onto a floured surface.

Use a glass to cut out rounds roughly 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter and 3 cm (11/4 inches) deep and place them close together on a greased baking tray. Gather the scraps together, lightly knead again, then cut out more rounds. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until puffed and golden. Serve with jam and lightly whipped cream.
