  3. Add butter and mix with your fingertips to a coarse meal. 
  4. Add buttermilk and mix just until combined. 
  5. Leave it crumbly and not fully combined.
  6. Transfer dough to a floured board. 
  7. Gently pat the dough and crumbs to combine. 
  8. Flatten it to a rectangle.

  12. Do this 3 times or until your dough comes together.
  13. Finally flatten out with your palm or rolling pin and cut with a sharp cookie cutter with a straight downwards motion. Do not twist the cutter.

  15. Brush the tops with eggwash, and bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. 
  16. Serve warm, split in half and top with butter, jam and cream.

Please check recent video posted on how it's made.
*I make my own buttermilk by adding 1 tbsp of White Vinegar to 200ml of Full Cream Milk.
