- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for sprinkling
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Make a well in center and pour in cream.
Working around edge of cream, slowly stir in flour.
When well is a pasty consistency, work in remaining flour, taking care not to over-mix.
Using hands, knead dough a few times just until any dry bits are incorporated.
Divide into 6 portions and gently roll into balls.
Transfer to baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between scones.
Brush tops of scones with melted butter, then sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until cakes are golden brown on top and bottom.
Serve warm, topped with your favorite fresh fruit and whipped cream or ice cream.
