Makes 10

3 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp finely grated orange rind
1 Tbsp finely grated lemon rind
100g cold butter, chopped
1 1/4 cups milk Store-bought lemon curd and fresh raspberries, to serve

Preheat oven to 180C. Place the flour, sugar, orange and lemon rind in a bowl and mix to combine.

Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub it into the flour until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Use a butter knife to gradually mix the milk into the flour mixture until just combined.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently bring the dough together. Roll out to 3cm-thick and use a 6cm-round cutter to cut out 10 rounds.

Place the scones close together on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

Serve with lemon curd and raspberries.
