The scone is a type of plain cake, made with flour, a raising agent, a small proportion of fat and some liquid, usually milk, to bind the mixture. The mixture is cooked in a hot oven or on a griddle.

Scones do not keep well and are best served piping hot, split and spread with fresh butter and/or lots of double or clotted cream and jam. Slightly stale scones may be toasted and served hot with butter.
