Steps

1
Done

Stir the lemon juice into the milk (to create ¾ cup homemade buttermilk). Leave to one side - it will curdle and look a little lumpy.

2
Done

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3
Done

Add in cubed butter and mix in until the mixture resembles fine crumbs (use a mixer, or clean hands if easiest).

4
Done

Add buttermilk and lemon zest, stirring until just mixed.

5
Done

Tip dough onto a lightly floured benchtop, and knead gently. Shape into a ball.

6
Done

Lift onto a lined baking tray and pat down into a circle approx. 20cm in diameter.

7
Done

Use a sharp knife to score eight wedges like a pizza (don’t cut all the way through!).

8
Done

Sprinkle with a little sugar and bake at 180°C for 20-25 mins or until a light golden colour and cooked through.
