180ml milk  1 tsp vanilla extract  A small squeeze of lemon juice Pinch of salt


Sift flour, salt and baking powder. Gently rub butter in until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in sugar. Put milk into a pan and warm slightly, add vanilla and lemon juice and stir. Add to flour and mix to a dough. Tip out onto floured surface then pat until 4cm deep. Use a 5 cm cutter to cut out scones. Glaze with a beaten egg.

For fruit: add a handful of sultanas, glace cherries and currants.
