Making Paul Hollywood’s Scone Recipe


These scones are pretty easy to make, and they taste delicious!! They sometimes get quite difficult when I put too much water in the mixture, so don’t use too much water.

If you do add to much water, you can always add some flour to the mixture.

I hope you enjoy making these scones as much as I do.


Makes: 12 Prep: 20m Cooking: 15m Total 35 Difficulty: easy


  • Paul Hollywood’s Famous Scone Mix
  • 80g unsalted cubed butter
  • 190ml water
  • Extra flour for dusting
  • Egg or milk to glaze
  • A 7cm cutterIMG_1798

TIP: Add dried fruit and glacé cherries to the dough before moulding and baking.


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 Degrees Celsius (200 Degrees Celsius fan), Gas Mark 7.
  2. Line a baking tray with parchment.
  3. Lightly rub the butter into the entire scone mix to give a breadcrumb like texture.IMG_1803
  4. Mix in the egg and half the water.IMG_1804Gradually add the remaining water to form a soft dough. IMG_1806You can always add more water if necessary.
  5. On a floured work surface, fold the dough in half then through 90 degrees. Repeat this folding and turning 3 times. Be careful not to overwork your dough and be careful not to add too much water like I did here. If you do, just sprinkle some more flour and pat it in.
  6. IMG_1807Roll the dough to 2.5cm/1in thick
  7. Using a 7cm cutter, stamp out circles IMG_1809and place them onto the baking tray. Any leftover dough can be worked and rolled again.
