STEP 1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the flour and sugar in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Add the butter and, using your fingertips, rub it into the flour mixture until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
STEP 2 Gradually add the buttermilk and, using a butter knife, mix to combine until a soft dough forms. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and gently bring it together with your hands.
STEP 3 Roll out the dough to 2cm thick and, using a 5.5cm-round cutter, cut out 9 rounds, gently re-rolling the dough if necessary. Tightly arrange the scones on a lightly greased baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and cook for 20–22 minutes or until golden.
STEP 4 Top the scones with the jam and cream to serve. Makes 9.
