Whipped together in only 15 minutes and then ten minutes in the oven, these scones with cream and strawberries are quick and easy to prepare. The ultimate secret to getting your scones fluffy and delicious is to ensure you do not overwork the dough.

If you want an appetising golden colour on your prepared scones with cream and strawberries, brush them with beaten egg before popping them into the oven.

The best is to enjoy these baked gems when warm from the oven. However, you can also keep them in an airtight container. If you want to keep them for a longer period, freeze them in an airtight container. When you are ready to defrost them, place the frozen scones in a low oven, about 160°C for a few minutes to refresh.
