Simple Scones with Kefir

English scones are an unforgettable treat and nothing like the American scones sold at so many large-scale coffee shops. 

Try this simple recipe using cultured kefir for an extra-tender crumb to your very British scones.


  • 2 cups flour (soft wheat or spelt is best)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup milk kefir


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut butter into chunks and cut into flour using fingers or a pastry cutter until the size of small peas.
  3. Add sugar and slowly mix in kefir until a dough forms. The dough should just hold together and not be too sticky. Knead briefly to bring the dough together and turn out onto a floured surface.
  4. Roll out into a 1½-inch thick round or rectangle. Use a 2-inch biscuit cutter to cut out the scones and transfer to a baking sheet. Knead together scraps and cut into more scones until all of the dough is used up.
  5. Bake 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and serve warm with cultured butter, clotted or whipped cream, and jam.
