Ingredients
  

To make the Giant Scone...

  • 280 g plain flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 70 g margarine
  • 1 egg free range
  • 150 ml milk

For the filling...

  • 450 g strawberries
  • 475 ml double cream
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar sifted
  • 6 tbsp strawberry jam

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C Fan). Then, grease and line a round 20cm cake tin.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into a large bowl.
  • Add the margarine and rub in with your fingers until the mixture resembles even breadcrumbs.
  • Create a well in the mixture and add the egg and milk to the centre.
  • Mix together until just combined fully. It will look like Voldemort's rotting flesh but that's okay.
  • Spread mixture into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven when cooked through and the top has a light golden brown colour. Leave to cool.
  • Once cool, carefully cut the cake horizontally in half so you create two layers.
  • On the bottom piece, spread an even layer of strawberry jam.
  • Using a freestanding mixer or electric whisk, mix together the double cream and icing sugar on a medium/high speed until the cream becomes fluffy.
  • Cut the tops off of the strawberries (setting aside some whole ones for decoration) and then cut them half. Arrange on top of the strawberry jam layer.
  • Pile the whipped cream on top of the strawberry layer (setting some aside for decoration) and spread into a level layer with a knife.
  • Place the top layer of the cake on top of the whipped cream.
  • Put the remaining whipped cream into a piping bag and pipe tall rosettes on the top of the cake. Push a small strawberry into each rosette.
  • Sprinkle over icing sugar for final touch.
