Homemade scones, but not as you know them! Lavender turns this simple scone recipe into something else entirely with an indulgent, aromatic finish.


Prep time

Cook time



  • 3 cups wholemeal self-raising flour, sifted
  • 75g butter, chilled & cubed
  • 1 tbsp culinary lavender
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Jam & double cream, to serve


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Combine the flour and butter in a large mixing bowl. Use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  • Add the lavender, then fold in the milk using a dinner knife and knead softly until smooth. If the dough feels too dry at this point, add more milk.
  • Prepare a lightly floured surface and knead the scone mixture. Roll into a circle of at least 2cm thick. Cut out scone rounds using a 5cm cutter.
  • Place scone rounds on a baking tray lined with baking paper, leaving a small gap between each one. Brush each scone with egg wash.
  • Bake in the oven for 10–12 mins until golden.
  • Allow to cool slightly on a cooling rack and serve with jam and cream.
