Traditional Scones

These traditional scones have a delicious, classic flavour with a slight stretchiness in the dough once cooked. If you wish, this recipe can be mixed up by adding raisins, lemon zest or choc chips to the mixture, but I prefer them just the way they are with some good old strawberry jam and vanilla bean infused whipped cream.
