Had some friends over last weekend so baked some scones to have with jam!
I used a Mary Berry recipe - 
(Makes 12 scones)
225g Self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
50g butter
25g caster sugar
1 egg

Pre-heat the oven to 220c. Lightly grease 2 baking trays
Measure the flour and baking powder into a bowl, then add the butter and rub in with the fingertips until the mix resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
Break the egg into a measuring jug then make up to 150ml with milk. Stir the egg and milk into the flour - you may not need it all - and mix to a soft but not sticky dough. (I added some raisins and chocolate chips at this point) Turn out on to a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly and then roll to a thickness of 1cm.
Cut into rounds with a fluted 5cm cutter and place them on the prepared baking trays. Brush the tops with a little extra milk or any egg and milk left in the jug and bake for about 10mins until they are a pale golden brown. Cool on a wire rack and eat them as fresh as possible. (Note - if you have some left over the next day, microwave them for a few seconds to revive them).
