The English scone is a baked good that is particularly popular in the United Kingdom and a part of the traditional tea party. It is usually sweet, although there are savory versions as well. Scones are often served split in half with butter, jam, or clotted cream, especially during the English tea ceremony known as “afternoon tea.”

They are made from wheat flour, sugar, butter, milk, baking powder, and sometimes eggs for an additional firming structure. There are various variations, some of which include additions such as raisins, cherries, strawberries, or other dried fruits, as well as flavors like vanilla or lemon zest.

Scones have a soft and crumbly texture, and they are often baked to a golden brown color. This dish has become a symbol of British culinary culture and continues to be a favorite choice for many people both in the UK and around the world.

Enjoy your English tea with homemade scones!
