Mrs Pepe's Buttermilk Scones

Mrs Pepe's Buttermilk Scones

(Makes around 12 scones)


  • 2 cups of self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup of Pepe Saya Buttermilk + extra for brushing
  • 60gm Pepe Saya Unsalted Cultured Butter (chilled and chopped)
  • Jam and Pepe Saya Clotted Cream to serve



  • Preheat fan forced oven to 200c. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Position oven rack in the top half of the oven.
  • Sift flour into bowl, add chilled Butter. Using your fingertips rub butter into flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Make a well in centre of flour. Add buttermilk. Using a flat-bladed knife, stir until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently until just smooth.
  • On a lightly floured surface gently roll out dough to 2cm thick. Using a 6cm round cutter, cut out scones. Press leftover dough together. Repeat to make 12 scones.
  • Place scones on prepared baking tray just touching and brush with extra buttermilk. Bake for 12~15 mins or until golden on top and hollow when tapped.
  • Remove from oven and place into clean bowl with tea towel and wrap to keep warm. Split your scone by hand and serve with a good spread of our jam and a dollop (or two) of clotted cream.
