My quest for the perfect scone recipe

A good plain scone, real butter and a cup of earl grey are one of life’s joys. Well for me, Kate likes fruit scones (yuck), covered in jam. However, I have frustratingly found that all the recipes I have tried for making my own scones have been a disappointment. Small and sometimes just too crumbly.
