  1. Line a baking tray with parchment and pre-heat the oven.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and blend together well.
  3. Sprinkle the honey and oil over the flour and use a fork to blend them until the mixtures looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. Stir in the milk and bring everything together to form a soft slightly sticky dough.
  5. Turn out the dough onto a flour dusted surface and gently press into a 25x12cm/10x5” rectangle.

I have just made these scones but added 2 extra tablespoons of organic milk. My husband and I have just tasted and think they are lovely. Texture light and very tasty NO FUNNY TASTES Will definitely use this recipe again.

My husband made these and use slightly less than the stated baking powder. The scones looked beautiful, but tasted strange - somewhere between soap and metal. They also seemed to lack the substance that I associate with really good scones. I'm wondering if Dove meant teaspoons or dessertspoons? Quite disappointing. He had already started making the recipe when he checked out the reviews (because he couldn't believe the quantity of baking powder). We threw ours away, sadly. Waste of time, effort and good ingredients.

Many thanks for your feedback. We have baked these again and we would certainly recommend to always use level tablespoons of Doves Farm Baking Powder and mix thoroughly to incorporate all ingredients with the flour. Best wishes, Doves Farm.

Not good. Regularly make scones but decided to make these as an alternative. Followed the receipe to the letter but these taste bizarre - it must be the bicarbonate of soda. I wished I'd looked at the other reviews first - we can't all be wrong!

I had to throw them away! I used 2 level tbsps of baking powder as advised but they 'collapsed' (went flat) and still tasted fizzy.What a waste of gorgeous ingredients. Please advise...

Fennel and sundried tomato Thank you Doves Farm I made savoury scones using fennel, I just missed out the honey and added extra olive oil, fennel, sundried tomato and seasoning. GREAT with soup.

Was a bit unsure after reading the previous reviews but used level tablespoond and these taste great! I also used wholemeal spelt instead of white.

The measure for baking powder is obviously incorrect. Serious after taste of baking powder. Had to dump as inedible because of baking powder!

Way too much baking powder! My tongue felt like it was fizzing! Had to throw them away which is a shame because they were so simple to make.

Dear Caroline. Thank you for your feedback. We re-baked this recipe and used two level tablespoons of baking powder and the scones were fine. The secret to this recipe is to use level tablespoons, many thanks. All the best from Doves Farm
