A scone is a single-serving sized, mildly-sweet bread with a very pleasing mouth-feel. It is usually made of a combination of plain flour and whole wheat flour, with baking powder as the leavening agent.

It is baked on sheet pans or in a baking tray. Scones are also sometimes glazed with a milk wash, to give them a milky aroma and to retain the softness.

Scones taste different from teacakes and other sweet buns made with yeast. Scones are an indispensable part of a continental breakfast and some evening tea routines too.

It is usually served with tea or coffee, and clotted cream and jam.

Scones with Whipped Cream and Jam can also make a light afternoon meal with tea. Here is how to make this heavenly treat!
