British scones are traditionally served with afternoon tea, but they also make excellent additions to the bread basket for brunch or even as a weekday breakfast, since you can freeze them after baking and cooling and then simply reheat without thawing when ready to serve. This recipe is a good foundation to build upon; once you've mastered it, then you can try folding in currants or raisins or other dried fruits along with spices and chopped nuts.

  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 40 grams sugar
