Servings 8 / Prep time 15 mins / Cook time 15 mins


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan and line a baking tray with greaseproof baking paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder.
  3. Chop up the butter into small cubes. Rub it into the flour using your fingertips until you have a fine breadcrumb consistency. There should be no lumps of butter remaining.
  4. Mix in the sugar.
  5. Add the lavender flavouring to the milk and give it a little stir.
  6. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk. Mix together until a dough is formed.
  7. Dust your work surface with flour and shape the dough into a circle, around 3-4cm thick.
  8. Using a sharp knife, slice up the dough into 8 even pieces (like a pizza).
  9. Place the sliced dough onto the prepared baking tray, leaving a gap between each.
  10. Brush the tops of the dough with a little milk.
  11. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
  12. Remove from the oven and cool the scones on a wire rack.
  13. Once the scones are cool, mix together the icing sugar, lemon extract and milk to make the icing.
  14. Drizzle the icing over the tops of the scones using a spoon or piping bag.
  15. If decorating with lavender, sprinkle it over the tops before the icing sets.
  16. Best enjoyed fresh on the day.
