Afternoon Tea Scones

  • 1 min read

Our most requested recipe is for the scones that we serve at Afternoon Tea. Our Executive Pastry Chef was happy to oblige and has made this step-by-step video on how to make your very own batch at home. He recommends that you serve them freshly baked with cream and lemon curd – what is your favourite way to enjoy them? Happy baking!


Scones (makes 25 scones)



100gr butter

165gr sugar

35gr baking powder

600gr plain flour

230gr milk

1 large egg

150gr raisins



Place the cold butter, sugar, baking powder and flour in the mixer and mix slowly for 15 minutes until you have a fine powder.

Add the egg and milk and mix it until combined together.

Divide the dough in 2 halves.

Add the raisins to one half.

Roll it down to desired thickness and cut - you can use a knife and do square scones if you don’t have a cutter.

Glaze with an egg wash (3 yolks, 50gr milk) and bake in the oven at 180C for approx. 15 minutes (oven dependent)
