It’s been quite a long time since I posted a scone recipe…But wait no more! Here’s another one, and this time it’s the perfect scone recipe to satisfy your cravings at lunch, dinner, or even for Breakfast!

These scones are special and delicious because they are made with:

A mix of All-purpose flour and Cornflour


You can obviously omit the cornflour or use whole milk (or any milk but the scones are going to be less rich in flavors), but note that you won’t obviously have the same taste and mybe a lighter color if not using cornflour.

These scones are flaky even with only 6 grams of butter!

And it’s only optional, but recommended as this creates rich butter pockets…yes it’s possible with only 6 grams if you rub the butter in the flour correctly 😉

Once you have done this recipe once or twice, you’ll see how quick and easy these scones are to assemble. You’re going to make them again and again!

  • 180 gr all-purpose flour 1 cup + 1/2 cup
  • 40 gr cornflour 1/3 cup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp butter -cubed and cold- optional
  • 160 ml buttermilk -or whole milk or any milk- 2/3 cup


  1. Please note that cups are not as precise as metrics and that I strongly recommend using a scale for a perfect result.

  2. Preheat the oven at 450°F (220°C).

    You can preheat the pan where you're going to bake the scones as well, it will help them rising and bake the bottom properly.

  3. Add both flours in a large bowl. Add in the salt and baking powder.

    Add the chunks of butter and rub them in the flour with your clean hands.

    Pour the buttermilk evenly in the flour (in circles) and using a spatula, start to mix in an homogeneous mass.

  4. When all the flour is moistened by the milk, use your hands to form a ball of dough.

    It should look chunky and not smooth.

    Remove the dough from your bowl on a floured surface (or use the dry bits in the bottom of the bowl; I never add more flour, I use the leftovers of dry ingredients at the bottom the bowl.)

    Try and shape a rectangle with your dough. Flatten slightly with your hands (floured if you want to be absolutely sure it doesn't stick but I don't use flour). Fold the widths and then the lengths, one by one. Even the edges with your hands (or a scraper) by pressing the dough inwards.

    Halve the dough with a scraper or a knife.

  5. Place the scones on a tray on parchment paper and bake on the oven rack for 15 min.

    Alternatively, place a parchment paper on the preheated tray and add the scones with your scraper or hands if necessary.

    Cut each scone in half and spread savory filling of choice.

    Enjoy warm or cool!
