  3. Add the buttermilk or yoghurt. Beat well.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.
  5. Mix in the liquid mixture until a soft dough forms. Work lightly and quickly: scones do not like heavy hands.

  7. Press out circles with a cookie cutter.
  8. Pack these rounds, with edges overlapping a tiny bit, around the rim of a greased pie plate or other shallow round oven dish.

  11. Spread the topping carefully over the raw scone ring with a wooden spoon, a knife or a spatula.
  12. Sprinkle over a little extra cayenne (or paprika powder) over for colour.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until puffy and golden.
