Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    See recipe for variations. Some versions of this book have a mistake in the recipe. If you substitute extra butter for the Trex - use only 25g not 75g as the recipes states. See for an explanation from the Nigella team.

    Not necessarily the prettiest looking scone but they are always a hit regardless

    Best scones I have ever made.The amount of cream of tartare looks like a mistake, but it is right, and these don't have the strong metallic taste you can get with too much baking powder. Even more successful if you substitute buttermilk for the milk in the recipe.

    These are simple and easy to make and can be from bowl to oven and plate within 30 minutes. I must admit to adding a couple of spoonfuls of sugar to the recipe!
