Cornish Scones recipe

Enjoy a proper cream tea at home with Neil's Cornish scones recipe

Take a look at Neil Haydock’s recipe for Cornish Scones using Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream.

Makes 12 Cornish scones


  • 500g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 15g baking powder
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g salted butter, diced
  • 250ml milk
  • 1 free-range medium , lightly beaten
  • 227g pot of Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream
  • 200g good-quality strawberry jam


  1. Rub the flour, butter, sugar and baking powder together to form a crumb.
  2. Add the milk and form a smooth, soft dough with your hands.
  3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2.5 cm thick and cut into rounds with a 5cm cutter. Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Brush the tops of the scones twice with the beaten egg.
  4. Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes. Do not over-bake them or they will be dry.
  5. Serve warm with the Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam – The perfect Cornish cream tea.
