Dust a large baking tray with a little flour and pre-heat the oven.
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl, add the sugar and blend together well.
Add the butter to the bowl and using a fork, blend everything together until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in the milk then use your hands to bring together a soft mass of dough.
Lightly dust the worktop with flour, place the dough in the middle and flatten it to 3cm/1” with your hands.
Press a round pastry cutter or upturned coffee cup into the dough to cut out circles.
Lift the dough circles onto the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown

tasty and family agreed, but more of a sweet bread than scones, will do half white and half whole next time and might try them thinner with more Xylitol (as this is what i substituted for brown) sugar to see if they come out a bit like biscuits instead
